Is anyone else as excited about the removable fenders as I am?

Being able to take the rear quarters of like that is pretty sweet.

The quarters are a big deal.

Front fenders are almost always removable, but with varying difficulty depending how they are attached and how much crap is attached to them. I'm curios where these land on that spectrum.
Yeah my jeep front fenders are held on my 5 bolts (2 at the grill, 3 at firewall). But then I have numerous items bolts to them. But it does make working on the jeep easier at times.

But the paint won't match without a blend, so you can physically replace them, but you'd still want to paint them on the vehicle and blend into the door(s), pillar(s), tailgate or hood. Not that it's really important, no one is really going to do that; although I almost bought a second set of fenders for my Super Duty when I first got it because I wanted to cut larger wheel openings, but I was going to leave them e-coated, knowing they'd never really match to stock paint.
It may also depend on the paint color and shop. I was surprised when the shop that painted my aftermarket fenders & flares silver to match my 11 yr old Jeep was able to get it spot on without having my jeep physically on site. I remember them using some digital scan tool to get some readings on my jeep doors before they actually painted the fenders.

It looks like the Bronco will have an inner structure that stays behind, so hopefully everything is attached to that. It takes away some of that service ease you have.

Absolute cannot wait for widebody fenders with squared wheel wells. going to be some salty 4 door owners once these become available because you can't get away from rounded wheel wells on the rear quarter panels on the 4 door

Gotcha. Yeah everything is bolted to my inner fenders but the inner fenders cant remain in place if I remove the fender itself.

Removable fenders dont mean much to me. If I needed to replace my wrangler fenders it took me a few minutes and I never removed them before wheeling. My current steel flares on my jeep are removable w/ 2 allen bolts and again Ive never removed them when wheeling.
You must have Metal Cloaks. I have those, remove the fronts sometimes on tight trails, but never the rears

I'm not telling U.
Loving it. We can make our own Harlequin Edition, there will not be any mismatch issue...mic grey top, navy pier interior, orange trim, blue trim, black bumpers, black pillars will not be a problem.
