If you take a look over at the JD site you'll see that the LX 288 will accommodate the following decks:

Optional Attachments:
Mowers 38 in., 42C, 42M, 48C, 54C

So, to answer your question, yes, you can have your cake and eat it to. However, getting it is another story. An LX288 with a 42C is probably a special order for most dealers. I know my dealer was almost stymied when I asked about a GT 235 with a 42C (48C is standard). The machines are purchased as a unit and the dealers aren't too keen on mix and matching new parts. However, a large dealer may not have a problem with this. The other thing you need to consider is the resale value. Having a beefy machine with an undersized deck is not considered a collector's item… ;-)

Hope this helps.
