We just completed this project on our 2007 Jeep JK 2 door Rubicon using 4 door OE MOPAR rock rails from a 2017 JK. We bed linered the 2017 rails and then cut them to 56 inches in length. The front section do not need trimming, only the rear section. After cutting to length using an abrasive cutoff blade, we cold galvanized the cut surfaces and touched up with same bedliner. We then applied red Rust Check corrosion inhibitor inside since the interior surfaces are raw steel that are prone to catastrophic corrosion after 10 years in the rust belt. Afterwards, we recapped the ends using the caps from the waste sections. You need to remove the christmas tree retainer plugs that hold the end caps in place (this was an improvement over the 2007 Jeep OE rock rails. If you are going to be using oversized tires, you will want to cut the rails to about 55 inches or less instead of 56 inches to allow fitment. The reason we were dealing with 4 door rails is that they came up more frequently as used items on kijiji than 2 door rock rails and often at better prices. I only found one reference on the internet about being able to trim 4 door rails down for a 2 door so hopefully this post will make the answer to the question easier to find, albeit in a strange place like a Saab site.
