Re: 31\'s(locked) vs. 33\'s(open)
Definitely go with the 33's and open diffs. Part of the problem with today's wheelers is they lock the diffs way too soon, not learning how to properly read a trail and pick a line. If you are open, you actually have to think about how to get past an obstacle. If you go with the smaller tires and are locked, then you'll get past it, you'll just drag all the way and mess something up. If you want to make it interesting, just separate the 2 rear e-brakes and set them up on different levers. This way, when you get twisted up, you can yank that brake and it'll get you going again.
The winch I always recommend though, it'll get you through anything, locked or unlocked.
