You can find calculators on the net to compare the gears and tires you had to see what you would need with your 42's. I tall depends on what your gonna be using your truck for as well.

i have studied the charts but they dont consider overall gear strength. the tranny is an overdrive so i can go pretty deep without sacraficing driveability
