Ah, so before manufacturers could just build whatever wheelbase and fit the body nicely over, but now they've got to build a monster truck wheelbase and fit a smaller body over it, necessitating the fender flares.

But, the CyberTruck isn't confined by those rules, so I wonder why it has massive fender flares?
