Your rooted, stock I take it. Doesn't matter which OS.. Froyo/GB etc...
1. Make a Nandroid Backup of your current setup in CWM. Using the backup/restore option. This way you have this to return to as a working untouched setup.
2. Use Titanium Backup (FREE) from the Market. This will list all the applications and system apps on your device and all you to make a backup of the application and then either freeze or remove it.
3. The following list, even outdated is still very valuable to get you a heads up on apps that are safe to remove. This is Froyo based so some things may not be named exactly the same or even exist in Gingerbread. I will see if I can dig up a better updated list for Gingerbread. List: Stock Apps and their .apk files (for removal)
This should get you where you want, you can still keep your data and everything in tact without having to flash a custom ROM. You can go that route but there is a little more to doing so to restore you application data, etc...
Anything else.. Just ask.Paul

Awesome, thank you, your help is greatly appreciated. I'm working with titanium right now to begin to remove the background apps I dont want in my phone at the moment. I think I would like to remove all the communications protocols for everything except wifi access and tethering since my phone doesnt have active cell service right now. I'll use the backup to store those settings when and if I ever get it reactivated. All your help is greatly appreciated, I'll check in regularly as I can to continue this and perhaps we can leave a trail together to help other users with the thread
