Exactly, I don't know how I have missed these, I have a folder on the ole puter FULL of pictures. But good god it looks 10000000 times better without those horrendous things on it
They’re required because most states that have safety inspections require the wheel/tire to not exceed the fender/flare either at all, or not by a certain amount. Im the exact opposite and think 3 inches of exposed tire looks ridiculous. Especially when they’re shooting rocks at everyone’s windshield behind them.

Fully aware of most of the vehicle regulations but doesn't change the fact that it looks 20x better lol

Thank you!

This is the first I’ve seen these. I love the no flare look, but the aftermarket needs to be quick about something to cover those holes where the flares mount to. I wonder how the quick release flares work exactly.
I think I heard in an interview with the head Bronco guy they are removed by a quarter turn of a bolt. I'm assuming the bolt has some type of retention system so they don't easily release while regular driving though.

Yea there are tabs on the underside to remove them for easy replacement..

Nice!

Kind of wish he’d just take the entire flare off and recorded it but I’ll take what I can get.

Yup. The no-flare look is trying too hard. Like tuner cars with too much negative camber. But in this case, it's even worse because there's a likelihood of damaging other cars behind you. If somebody dislikes the factory flares that much, maybe they ought to get an Outer Banks with the painted ones.
