PM Ashcook. He has fitted an EF/L dash into his XF ute, it'll be pretty much the same job.

From memory it is pretty straight forward apart from the a/c vents.

Theres a few issues - but the hardest one seems to be the Blend door servo - on a ute there just isnt room under the dash for it where it is.

Im doing it to my XF - but I had a GHIA so I have an existing blend motor in a different place. Im going to see how that works out
