I've seen hundreds of Bronco Raptor photos...maybe more. But I don't recall a single one that shows what it looks like with the fender flares taken off. Anyone else seen one?

No. Flares are not meant to be removable like a Bronco, just like it would be hard to find a pic of a Tacoma without fender flares

They can definitely be removed, just not as easily as a regular Bronco. Might be worth considering it for a serious day or weekend of rock crawling (like the Rubicon Trail for example), though I'd never do it for typical California desert trips. Just curious to see what the rig looks like without them...

In one of the BR launch video's it's mentioned fendor flares may be removed but you first need to remove the flare/fendor liner to access the bolts retaining the flare to the fender. I'm quite sure the flares are removable. The mudflaps understandably may be easily removed with removing other components. And I have not seen any BR photo's without the flares.

Appears it's possible to removed the flare without removing inner flare liner and fasteners, however Not the recommended procedure.

Yeah I saw this earlier on B6G. Not really what I was thinking of when I posted the question (this is more of an accident than a planned mod) though it does indicate how complicated the flare attachment is.
