Pretty much a full 13-14 rear swap.
Or you can cut it but I've yet to see a quad setup using a 2012 rear bumper that looked decent.

Rear bumper and valence, license plate surround, you'll probably need the lights for it to look right too.

Thinking here but if you do all of that you might even look at 2013-14 GT500 too. probably cost a little more than the 11-12 but give you that taillight look also. other option is to see how the Roush valance works with quads. I have no idea and might be crap but just a thought since they are bigger square cut outs.

Why not just install the lower valence?

Or you can trim your stock valance to fit the quad tips.....

You can, but every single 11-12 car I've seen done that way looks like trash. There's a reason you don't see a lot of quad tips on 11-12 bumpers.

They probably don't take their time and just start hacking at it.

Cutting looks decent to me
