I'm trying to decide if it's worth it or needed to extend the wheel well walls down to the level of the belly pan.... Just wondering what others with larger vehicles and gaps like this have done.
You're the one to decide if it's worth it.

If someone with a larger vehicle that has done something chimes in, then great. But aero principles are scalable, the wheelwell is a localized feature. The solution will depend on the use case and [$$$]. A lateral wall will be more disruptive than a longitudinal one. The 'Bonnevette' had a curved plowshare shaped one.

The bottom of the fender could have speed holes in it.

Alternatively, you could fabricobble a fender skirt.
