you need XG engine mounts.
You need to cut the Drivers side caster arm support. (weld in a L shaped bracket for extra security.)
or even obtain the lower front off an XG.

You can use your original steering box, but you'll need to get some lines made, the pump on an XG has metric threads, and you XF steering box has imperial. once again, its best to source an XG box.

Also the XG sway bar is unique, it clears the sump by about 10mm.
