I am pretty sure that you are referring to the XH ute. They are the ones that have the EF front. Everything behind the guards is identical to the XD. Even the interior has a resembelence to the XF.

i've seen an XD -> XF sedan (don't know which one it was) that had the XH panels on the front, looked real weird but i'd say its all bolt on.
i'm not 100% on it though.

It's not an easy swap, it is pretty much the whole firewall forward that needs to be swapped, that's why you don't really see any cars with the mod done to them.
