Help identify brand of front bumper

Long time lurker and first time poster. I'm staying in a campground and saw a newer JK Rubicon with an aftermarket bumper. They were using their JK as a tow behind their RV. Owner got out of the campground before I could talk with them.

Here is the description from looking at it. Bumper ends angled upward like most aftermarket bumpers. It had an intergrated Warn 6000 winch that was mostly hidden inside the bumper. It appeared to use the stock fog lights intergrated into the bumper. There was a license plate bracket covering the hole in the bumper where where the winch cable exited the bumper.

The bumper also had brackets that I assume were for recovery rings; however they were being used as attachment points for the Blue Ox towbar on the RV.

It was the cleanest bumper, winch, tow setup I've ever seen. Can't find it on any of the accessory websites. Your help would be appreciated.

Thanks for the response. That is very close except the one I saw appeared to use the stock fog lights in the bumper, and I don't think it had the curved bar above the bumper.

Just think I found it! Appears to be the Hyline OffRoad Front Mid Width Winch Bumper. Comments from anybody using this product?
