Bumper Bolts Spinning,

Trying to remove my rear bumper and the bolts holding my tow-hitch which is bolted to the frame are spinning when I try to loosen the nuts. I've tried grabbing the nuts from behind and I've PB Blasted like its my religion but I can't seem to break them loose.

I even tried using my impact wrench to loosen the nut from one side while my 3/8" socket holds the bolt from the other side and the impact wrench is just struggling.

Any other ideas?

Heat? Cutting them off and replacing?
