I'm only seeing mud on the rocker and lower quarter panel where the body work curves inward from the edge of the wheel. A mud flap coming down vertically to cover this gap makes sense, but I am failing to see the physics behind the necessity of coming 2" out past the extent of the top of the wheel arch.
Why then would Subaru cover the rear doors with protection?

Wind!!!
