2011 to 2014 bumper change...cover only?

Hey guys...trying to update my 2011 Limited with the 2014 front bumper and grille.

I can get my hands on the 2014 bumper and grille no problem, but will I need any other parts such as the bumper reinforcement and absorber? Or will the 2014 bumper cover and grille slide right on the existing 2011 reinforcement and absorber?

Thanks!

Could've sworn someone did this, searched, couldn't find it.

Hey Wicked...luisbaena did it but he told me he changed the "whole front clip". Trying to get clarification on what exactly he means by that.

Has anyone tried the opposite? I like the old front ends better.

If you have a 14...I will more than happily come do a front end swap with you and do all the labor and pay for your paint!
