Default Need a hand cutting nerf bars

I bought a set of nerf bars online. They are too long and rub the front tires. I need some help cutting them down. I was think a band saw or something. They are a straight bar with caps on the ends. Remove cap, cut tube, replace cap. The bar is made by raptor if you would like to google the product.

I want to make sure I get a good clean cut so the cap fits back in flush. The only tool I have is a sawzall.

The easiest thing to do would be to draw a straight line around it and use a cutoff wheel. I am assuming that everyone at least has a side grinder.

Won't the ends just rust off on their own?

neither do I. I am just going to try with the sawzall and if that dont work then Ill head over to firehawks.

The deal was I bought them online. They did not advertise they would not work with body lift or over sized tires. If i want to return them to get new ones it will cost me approx 125 bucks. I said screw that ill cut them and void the 10yr warranty. As far as the brackets not working because of the body lift I can deal with that and make my own. But I was kinda upset they did not advertise/disclose they would not work with oversized tires. They admitted they are meant for stock application and so did the manufacturer. I asked why I was not told this.

In the end 4wheelonline told me to go fawk myself they are a middleman drop ship company only.

I told them instead of standing behind your error and taking care of the refund and me buying another set from you, you will now not get anymore business from me and per the recommendation from the manufacturer I submitted a complaint to the bbb.

Which ones did you get and cost? I do have a bandsaw but your far away from me. I just checked out 4wheelonline and all I couldnt see straight bars.
