Body mount bolt

I was putting a new side step bar on to my95 yj, and while taking the rear drivers side door bolt out from the bushing, the bolt snapped halfway up. I cut a hole on the other side to see if I could get to it, but it seems that the nut is a square piece in the frame? I think at least. Not sure how I can get this bolt out and I could be wrong where it sits, it might not be in the frame, any help is appreciated and I know this has probably been asked but I haven't really seen a great answer to if it snaps where mine did. I'll post a picture of it later if it helps. Thanks guys and I look forward to more posts in the future.

The square piece that the nut sits in is actually part of the body. In order to access the nut, you need to cut a hole in the floor. Pull the other half of the bolt out, install the new bolt, and weld a patch back over the hole.

I did cut a hole in the floor and I still don't see access to the bolt or a way of getting it out.
Posted some pictures of what I did, maybe I'm in the wrong spot?

Can you put vice grips on the end of the bolt that's in the cab and spin it out?

I tried vice grips but to no avail. And I thought that was the nut but I still don't know how to get it out, any suggestions on that? Thanks again guys for the input.

Yep, just pry up the tin so you can get some vice grips on the nut.
