You can fit the front bar but the bonnet won't fit. There is a grill that will fit the GLi bonnet (front part of the XH bonnet is the same as the Gli) that will fill the gap between the bonnet and the Front Bar. NL front bar is the same as EF/EL Fairmont, NF Fairlane and DF/DL LTD.

But you don't need to change the guards. Front Bar is EF and if you use the XH bonnet with the grill I listed then he will be fine.

Any bar that will fit an EF or EL will fit the XH.

Just remember you are stuck with the XH Bonnet and guards.
