Can't you just bolt them from the backside?

Check out my post on skid plate bolts and nuts Jerry was very helpful I believe it was Mcmaster-Carr or Grainger that sells them but there is a picture on my thread

You can cold-chisel the old nutsert out though it's easier with an air tool. Then spot weld an insert you can get from Grainger into the hole.

Here's how... Transfer Case Weld Nuts - Write Up
