Is the truck your daily driver? You've only got a d30 up front, I'd be wary of running 39s on it, much less 42s. If it weren't your daily driver I'd say hell yeah! I just dont want to hear about you busting **** up.

my friends dad whom ive known for a long time told me hew wishes that he never sold his 42's to put the 44's on.he said 44' are to hard to drive down the road. my cuz with a solid axle tocoma had 42 tsl and it was fine. put 44's on it and he said 44 suck on the street.

expect to rebuild your motor sometime in the near future pushing those tires. Even with 5.13's and and a d44 up front. Your going to blow your motor apart.

Even if you put a D44 up front you better build the **** out of it.

I'd get a 60. I wouldn't go above 40's on a D44, and that big is only if you don't like the skinny pedal.

i thought about putting a 60 in but i dont no. i dont like the look of full width axle on our trucks. andd it would be a **** load of money to have a 60 narrowed.
