I did a dry fit last weekend of my 2014 bumper and grille to my 2011 Limited, and can tell you this:
The "side brackets" which bolt to the fender and lock the corners of the bumper in place will ABSOLUTELY have to be changed to accept the 2014 bumper without modification.
The "main brackets" which go under the 2014 headlights will also need to be installed...otherwise there's nothing to grab the 2014 bumper.
The 2011 absorber WILL DO without modification, ie accept the 2014 bumper, but I find it leaves "wiggle room" for the 2014 bumper and it can rattle. I'd get the absorber too.
Do it right, do it once.
