If you want to keep a trunk area use a hood and fenders, the 1 piece which is what I have on both my Bajas to me looks better but you lose having a trunk

Another thing to consider is the amount of weight you will be removing from the front end by going with the one-piece front end. If most of your driving is on the street, you may find the one-piece too light for safe cornering.

We found that we needed to add weight to the front end for street use. For a while we used a sand bag and later a piece of railroad rail. For off-road we removed the weight.

Although, it was fun to see the looks on people's faces when you popped a wheelie at an intersection. Very Happy
