Your question of the 4.10s in the front and 3.73s in the rear would let you float the front up on top of more mud like I am assuming you want to do.

Have you seen trucks with much more aggressive tread cutting done on the front tires? this also helps out in keeping the front end up like you want it to be in the mud drags.

I am also wondering what you are doing for traction aiding differentials, you are certainly using something there, gearing differences between the front and rear like you are asking about will act like a locker or spool in a single axle on a turn, you will have to get used to the handling differences coming into and out of the lanes, but once you get lined up and slam on the go pedal, your Jeep will want to follow those front tires no matter what you do, just like you want.
