Winch bumper question/search

Quick question. Does anyone remember the front which bumper that had an elevated section in front of the light panels for better appoach angles? They looked like a mustache. I have searched google and this forum and cannot find much.

Also did someone produce a round tube winch bumper/bull bar setup? I seam to remember those at one point.

I am trying to add a winch, and I want it to be cool, but don't really want to add massive ammounts of weight to my front end. Going minimalist.

Shipman or new ARB are the only two that I can think of that do that.

Do everyone a favor and add the photos to one of the two main bumper threads when you find it.

We have brought in tube winch bumpers from TerraFirma that sound like they may fit the bill.

RockStar Fab used to make a nice tubed bumper, but he's off living the good life now.
