    I did it with a non-SLine standard bumper...

    ... and removed the bump strips as well as grafting the ABT lip into the standard bumper. It was quite a bit of work to get it sorted thats for sure. You have to not only build up the bottom of the grille cavity (by about 1/2 an inch), but you also need to shape the bottom corners of the cavity to follow the contours of the right and left bottom corners of the grille. Below is what I ended up with, and as of now, I have 4,000 miles on the clock and no cracks or splitting to speak of.
