A Great Divide bumper was a limited edition ARB that came on the Gread Divide edition RRC. It is an Aluminum non-winch ARB bumper that says Range Rover on the front. It does not stick out in front of the grill quite as much as a winch ARB does. Personally, I think it looks real nice on classics, and I bought it not realizing what it was until it came. I want one for hardcore off-roading, and I do not want to use this one too much, because it is a rare item. If you would like pictures, please let me know, and I can e-mail you some.

The bumper that came on the Great Divide, was not made by ARB...it does look like one though. It's actually aluminum and very light weight...they're nice units, just not at bulletproof as the ARB. We sold ours in January and it was much nicer to ship than the heavier ARB!

I was recently regretting selling ours, as I think if properly modified, it would make a nice rear bumper...

I have the GD bumper from 91, so it is not a winch mount, and yes I am still wanting to sell it, but only if I can get an ARB steel bumper with the deal. I need something to put on the front, and it does not need to be a winch mount, I have a front reciever hitch and am getting the new Warn portable winch. Better for withstanding the harsh MN environment.

Warn portable winch

Is the front reciever hitch the same as a rear hitch?
Did you engineer the front hitch or is there a standard design?
So the Warn portable will work on both sides of the vehicle?

The front reciever hitch I have I engineered myself (I'm a mechanical engineer and do this kind of thing for a living), to fit very tightly up behind the bumper so that Ican maintain maximum approach angles. I chopped one off of a wreaked Jeep Wrangler (he he), and cut and welded mounting plattes out of 1/4" steel plating. It bolts onto the bumper mounting bolts, as well as the big one that the front steering guard bolts to.
Rovers North sells a factory made on. And yes the winch can be used either in the front or the back, it requires a bit extra wiring to use it in the back, but if you know what you are doing, it's not that big of a deal.

Warn Front Portable

Great Info. Thanks.
Harsh MN enviornment similair to Upstate NY.
Several more questions:
Can you use the stock Rover Classic bumper on the front with your winch modification? My vehicle is a '92 Rover classic.
What is Rover North?
Any chance of seeing pics of your modification? I have relatives in St. Paul.
THANKS!!

Yes you can, but the air dam would have to go, if it hasn't already. However, speaking from experience, the stock bumpers don't offer much protection, and if you plan on doing much of any offroading, you need something more.
Rovers North is the best place to buy rover parts in my opinion. Great prices, great help. go to www.roversnorth.com
Also, for a bumper, you might try Rover Specialties, located in St. Paul. try www.roverspecialties.com
I can get you pics eventually, I'm in Milwaukee for school, and so is my digital camera, while the rover is home in MN. If you give me your email, I'll send you pics next time I go home.
