Purejeep Front Tube Fenders and SRC Rockerguard Pics & Questoin on Rivnuts

Just installed a set of front tube fenders from purejeep. Definitely like them. They were packaged like crazy, got them for 815 for both front and rear from 4wd w/ free shipping. Awesome deal. The install was pretty straight forward and was much easier with a second person. Getting some of the nuts on the bolts was a task because of some small spaces. Had to drill 2 holes on each side. Really like the way they look and can still use my inner fender skeleton and liner

Also installed the smittybilt rocker guards. The rocker guards were.... a little pit of a pain in the ass as I expected, but I still go them on. I had to widen 1 hole with a drill and do something different with the main body mount bolt. I wouldn't even know how to explain it. I loosened my bolt bolt/washer and placed it into the threaded section with the bracket on top of the washer.. So the 2 studs and bolt/washer are holding the bracket in place. I was not able to fit the bracket around the large body mount washer and get it to line up with the studs so this way worked out. I hit them with bedliner before I mounted them and can use them as a step. Waiting to see how they hold up. They are really close to my 37s by the pinch seam but did a little flexing and clearance testing and surprisingly didn't rub when it was a little flexed. If I wanted to cut these rails, what kinda tool am I looking at? Im guessin they are hollow and wondering if a jigsaw or sawzall will work.

Here is the link because I just cant figure out how to upload photos in this forum since they are all too large. http://imgur.com/fg6vv5v,QD7sdpD,fXV...6vhqss,nzzMuPm Let me know if this image works..

The first picture that I have is the hardware that came with the rear tube fenders. I am guessing these are the rivnuts and the tools to use them . How they hell do they work? I tried searching goggle but everything I come across uses a specific tool that I don't have. Should I be looking to get a rivnut tool?
