How to remove bed support rails?

I have the trucks bed flipped over on some moving dollies in the garage and I have replacement bed support rails waiting to be installed.
My question is how to remove the old supports, they look to be just spot welds. Thinking just use a spot weld cutter, or maybe just a grinder.

Any of you already tackled this?
