    Why are the majority of internet pictures of people with Avid bumpers the contour and in 2nd the radias. I see little prerunner and even less Wyoming.

    I don't know for sure, but my guess is the contour bumper seems to show up more because it doesn't require cutting the front fenders as the radius does. Also, it is possible that a lot of non-TH renegade owners are mainly looking for recovery points and better approach angle more than a bumper that can handle 10,000 pound winches. The contour also makes for easy installation of the Renegade directional and fog lights. I could be completely wrong but that has been my thinking in getting an Avid bumper. My plan is to get the contour at some time (hopefully next year) especially for the recovery points and much better approach angle that my Latitude currently has. My off road driving would mainly be on the beaches when I go fishing and some fairly rugged dirt roads to a few of my favorite fishing spots. Recovery points on a non-TH are surely needed for any type of off road. The radius bumper is cheaper than the contour and the prerunner and Wyoming are pretty expensive. That could be why you don't see many prerunner and Wyoming bumpers.

    I second that, the Contour bumper is appealing to most due to not requiring fender cutting and the radius is a great looking bumper with lower cost when compared to pre-runner and wyoming.

    I can give you my two cents from my decision. The Contour is exactly that and I didn't want my bumper flush with the crunchy bits, for one. In my opinion the Wyoming is a Radius with a brush bar for an additional $350. That's a winch's worth of difference. Brush Bar or winch. Thus my decision to go with the Radius is a nutshell.
