They are for protecting the guy behind you’s windshield. Some people like the silly look of huge offset wheels sticking way out. You get pulled over for that around here, thank goodness they started cracking down on it.

Wish I could like this twice....I've had my windshields broke from wide tires and no flaps....I can get some guys like the look, but sort of fits the personality that they don't care about the guy behind them...

I can understand off road, but on the highways...cmon' man

Man gotta love these "leaked" photos and their low-res quality. Took me awhile to notice that there wasn't even front seats in the vehicle.
It's weird how like 99% of the pics/video of this thing look like they were taken with a potato cam, kind of annoying. Does Ford have some sort of device on these things that blurs camera sensors? My 15 year camera phone took much better quality pics. I just don't get it.

I’m a little surprised how good it looks fender-less. It’s got a more old school look to it.
Not good for on the road but in tight trials this looks much more nimble.

This photo of a white Bronco with fender flares removed was just sent in to us. Thanks to Samuel S.

Here were the previous (first) look from the trail of Bronco prototypes with no fender flares attached.

Removing fender flares will be a cinch on the 2021 Bronco, requiring no tools, as demonstrated in this video:

The white Bronco looks like a production Bronco they making into A Bahja

The quality of the picture probably started out fine. The problem is people don't understand that when you send a picture over SMS text it turns it into utter crap. They need to email them or use another online messaging app.

It's not the cameras; Broncos are actually blurry. Like Bigfoot.

I think flares off is hideous looking. BUT I appreciate Ford making it easy to remove. This feature will be well liked when detailing. The ability to removes flares without tools via some latches means you can wash behind the flares easily.

Also detailing shops that do wraps or PPF will LOVE this. You can easily wrap the fenders and then reinstall the flares and the wrap will look like a million bucks.

Good Job Ford!

besides the fact the idea of removing the flares for off road may add articulation. there are going to be a million options for flares. personally I am keeping mine on or whatever flare I decide to put on it. Also this will be the perfect model to PPF as you get the white body matched roof frame.

The raptor has been out 10 years and there are no companies that makes plastic flares. Plastic pieces are extremely expensive to produce due to the machinery involved. So you have to sell a few flares to recoup your investment.

BUT there are companies out there that make fiberglass and carbon fiber flares for the Raptor BUT they require lots work to make them fit like OEM.

I take it back, there is one company that makes plastic flares for the Raptor and that's Ford. They equip every Raptor with 4 of them.

Exactly my thought! First it was truck tailgates and now it will be fender flares. I will be figuring out a way to make those more "permanently" attached.

I mean, to be fair, Raptor's aren't as readily removed.

You see plenty of Wranglers with aftermarket flares, I have no doubt the market will have something for Bronco.
