the fender flares are just bad.
I agree. They widened the F150 fenders on the Raptor, not sure why they decided to put on a 5’ wide flare (exaggeration) instead of fenders in this application.

I'm guessing because they would've had to have produced a new pair of rear doors because they encompass part of the wheel well, and between tooling costs for that and the fact that many offroaders like to take their fenders off outright when they wheel that it wasn't worth doing a proper widebody for it and just extended the wheel arches instead.
