Broke the head off of a bolt...

And not the shaft part is stuck inside my jeep... Any way to get this out without screwing it up?

EZ out will be your best bet. What bolt is it?

Well there are several ways. You can drill and tap it, drill it and try an easy-out, if there is enough sticking out you can try vice grips. I would soak it with PB Blaster for a day or so and come back and try an easy out first. If not then get a tap and die set and go that route.

Well one of my tailgate hinges got bent so my dad and i took it off to fix it, but while taking it off we stripped the hardware. So we went to autozone and got some bolts of the same size to use. But I'm going to be bedlining my jeep soon and I'm gonna order some new hinges because they're still a little bent. Could you explain the process of drilling/tapping/easy out? I have never done something like this.
