The EF shape ute your thinking of is called "XH"

Ford utes from XD are as follows:

-XD
-XE
-XF
-XG = very similar to xf shape, but ED running gear
-XH = has the EF shape front
-AU = obviously completely different

Location: Narre Warren Sth.

XH I had the ef front and the II had the el front. xh II xr8's are fairly rare, something like 600 made but definately one of the toughest utes.

heres mine, just a six though.

whats your budget?

personally i love the XH11's but the rear end of them put me off, so for me im going to get a au ute, with either a xr6 body kit from a au, or a custom BA xr6 front end (then u pretty much cannot tell its a AU and u get the newer look with the sohc motor...)
