OEM short bed rails

Hey, trying to find a nice set of oem bed rails for my short bed. I found a good set for a long bed, can I just cut them down? Wanted to see if there was anything I'm not thinking of before I buy the long bed rails.

I would be interested in the long bed rails if they are nice and have a set of short bed available
