Name that bumper...

So I've been contemplating which bumper setup to upgrade to from my stock 110 bumper. Nothing has really grabbed me, and coupled with my factory A/C setup (and extended grill surround due to the A/C) also limited my options.

HOWEVER...I just fell in love with this one
http://www.roverracks.com/Defender110/RR_D130_2.jpg

Simple, sleek, sexy...and not only an integrated winch but also appears to be compatible with the factory A/C gill surround. Only problem is I have no idea of manufacturer/brand/etc.

Any input from the experts out there???

PS - I'm also in the market for an older style G4 roof rack for a 110 (gutter mount) if anyone happens to read this. Will post in the "Wanted" section later...

Looks a lot like a rockware without the brush guard.

Is that a chrome fairlead??

Yes, very similar to the RockWare indeed aside from the integrated winch vs. winch tray. If you can't find out the manufacturer, RW may be able to build you something very similar.

Absolutely. Now that I'm married, cars are the only thing I can rightfully pine over and/or make sleek and sexy. Or, if it better suits you, how about substituting form and function as my adjectives? That bumper sits up nice and high, and is not overly complicated (hence my "simple" description).

PS - that black 110 looks like it should be driven by an evil version of Doug...some sort of arch nemesis or brothers separated at birth kind of thing.

You sure I'm not the evil version? You clearly have not met my "good" brother Cabell.
Get some DG reading glasses to match your shades. Thats a full hcpu bed behind the four doors on the (black? looks like Cairns blue to me) truck-ie its a 130 double cab hcpu. Same truck I drive (when it cooperates) but looks to have several hundred fewer dents and appears to be a Puma.
