For wheel studs just press out the old one and press in a new one.

I've not stripped one on the jeep [knock on wood] but it would depend on how much space is behind it, you may have to pull the caliper, rotor and then the axle shaft if there is not enough room to push the old one out and get the new one in from behind. Once you have it started use a nut and a couple of washers, keep tightening with the nut till you pull the stud thru.

your screwed, throw that axle away, time for a dana 44.

should be enough room, if not rich is right, its no big deal. you can't repair the threads, thread file, die, or chaser?

Once you have the wheel off you should be able to pound it out. Then put new one on.. Been a while since I did one.. worst case remove the axle shaft . 1 hr job if everything is not frozen in place Then pound out the stud put new stud in use lug nut to pull it in tight and put it all back together..

Just make sure it's not a mag type closed end lug nut,
