But wouldn't the travel of my shocks limit the amount of articulation I could get
you will not break stuff by not disconnecting, yes your shocks my limit your downwar travel when disconnected, usually not a problem at crawling speeds, yes this more advantageous for rock crawling than for fire road mud hole driving.
there are more important things to consider before discos, such as good recovery gear and recovery points on the front and back of your rig.
