I know he's got new tires and a bumper. But what type of tires? Can you tell what lift? Like SL, BL?
Its hard to tell from the pic.

He has a 2005+, so to fit 33's, he would not need to do a lift, etc.

He does have some sort of slider, and, yes the bumper.

The tires might be MTR, 285/75/16 as a guess. He could have fit 305/70/16 though.

From the looks of it, I'd say he probably has something like this: http://www.nissteclifts.com/index.php?page=shop.product_details&flypage=flypage.tpl&product_id=59149&category_id=173&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=72
or Go here and go wild! http://www.nissteclifts.com/

I eventually put the OME HD (608 springs) front lift w/shocks on mine and it handles the extra weight of the bumper/winch much, much better now. In back I put a set of Timbren bumpstops and nisstec shackles on first hole because I still have my OEM rear shocks. http://timbren.com/active-off-road-bumpstops/

I would like to eventually replace the rear spring packs as they have sunk a bit and in general are just weeny but the timbrens make the ride much better with all my camping gear.

I had my bumper/winch with stock suspension for about 4 years (vehicle was less than 1yr old when installed) before I really noticed it sagging but by then it had dropped around 2".
It wasn't until after I upgraded the suspension that I felt I really should have done it sooner but the first year or two was fine with lots of wheeling and no problems.

Just depends on your $$ and what you want to do with your rig.
