Not that I know of, if anything it looks more like a jcr vangaurd, but its modeled entirely from scratch.

I have a version of this that is hidden like a rough country winch bumper, but it robbed the approach angle too much.

Maybe, haven't really though about it.
right now the outer skin is a piece that's 7 ft wide and 4 foot tall... so not really easy to ship.
And all the bends are currently done on a press brake.
weight after welding is 92 lbs as well

That's a really clean winch bumper.

Now lets see what you can come up with for a hidden winch.
