From the get-together in TN, one of the guys poked their head under and stated that they don't pop off like the other models.

This is actually the FIRST piece of NEW news I've heard about raptors in a long time. but it's also one I'm not real happy about. One can only hope that it is a pre-production version.

That piece of info is not new - I seem to recall hearing it a couple months ago. They were never intended to be quick-release like the normal Bronco fenders.

That's what I remember, not a quick disconnect however they are removable.

Ok, new to me :) I would think that since they are so big, they would be a removal item before hitting the trail like the side steps.

I'm guessing the quick pop off feather on other Bronco trims isn't available partially due to the Raptors composite fenders vs metal.

I spoke to a Ford rep and you have to remove the fender liner to take the fender flares off, they are bolted on. However the mud flaps can be taken off.
