Not too sure but im 99% confident normal EF/EL front would fit on the XH.

The xr6/xr8's use a low-series boonet so you can retain your original bonnet but then you won't have the air vents in the bonnet (can be purchased seperately anyway).

After that you will need lights, indicators and front bar for a conversion.

Now the hard part is finding all these parts under $1 000 + bonnet if you want xr one then of course paint needs to e factored in too.

the XH XR front is specific to the XH utes due to the XH being based on an XD bodyshell chopped and changed over the years

guards and bonnet are unique to XH, and considering the amount of s**t that was changed, i'd say probably only the headlight assemblies themselves are interchangeable with EF/EL

ive got a feeling the front bar on a xh ute(non xr) is the same as a ef/el. my cousin has put a ef front bar on his ute while his front bar was getting fixed. im not sure if the xr front would b interchangble. but the xh bonnet is totally different with an ef/el. i have looked into this myself
