Settle argument - Boring .030 in 4.0L?

I'm planning to bore my 4.0L .030 over (plus other stuff), my buddy says I'll need new pistons ..I say I won't. Who wins?

Your buddy wins...... Pistons are designed to fit the bore with just a little slack, If you increase the bore size you will end up with to much and the pistons will slap the cylinder wall and grenade the piston skirts. But its your motor not mine.

They do sell oversize pistons for just such an event. If all you are doing is honeing the cylinders dont worry about new pistons just replace the rings. All in all a .030 over bore requires .030 pistons and rings and the same goes for .040 and .060.
