Tj body bolt problems.

Why guys. Installing a 1 inch body lift on my 05 tj. Left rear body bolt (the one at the bumper) is giving me problems. The nutsert that's in the tub broke free and the bolt and but are just spinning in the hole. Of corse this the one that's completely boxed in. Already tried jacking up the body to put pressure on it and all. Any recommendations on what to do at this point?

Cut the rubber mount out with a Dremel tool or something assuming you don't need it anymore then vice grip the bolt is best I can think of. Then JB weld it maybe during reinstall. I'm a bit lost as to a good way to tighten it if that don't work.

That's the thing. I need the rubber. The pucks go on top of them.

If you can still see some of the bolt. Look up welding some metal to it to finish pulling it out

The only part of the bolt you can see is the head as the rest of it and the nutsert are all hidden in the boxed crossmember that runs along the back side of the tub.

Guess the only option I really have is cut the crossmember open to get in there

I had same problem with the middle bolt on the drivers side. I had to drill a hole in the floor under the front of drivers seat to get at the nut.
