Default Gearing Question

I know that your gears need to match but I believe there can be a slight discrepancy in the ratios.

What is the Largest spread?
Example Can I run a 4.27front and a 4.30 rear ?

Or is the Isuzu rear actually 4.27 axle?

Keep in mind that a variation in tire size of about 0.25" is equivelent to more than 1% difference in gearing. When you are offroad, are your tires always perfectly the same height?

I know in the toyota world, people run 5.29 rears with 5.38 fronts. I wouldn't go further than that..

There are 4.27 (47/11) and 4.30 (43/10) gearsets.
