Searched and didn't find anything. I like the LX470 but prefer the front end of the LC. How hard would it be to swap the front ends on these trucks?

Obviously would need:

hood
head lamps
grill
trim pieces below the head lights

what else am I missing?

I think a LC front clip with a lexus badge on a LX would look sweet!

You're also going to need to replace the metal structure that carries the headlights. I believe it's riveted on. I had to cut mine for clearance while installing an ARB bumper and the instructions (for an LC) made no mention of that step.

Looking at doing this and have an entire parts truck to source from. How difficult would it be?

If you have a part truck to source from then it will be pretty easy! Also I can swap you a set of new Depo 1 piece headlamp for your LX470 headlamp if you are interested as I need a set for my LX.
