Snapped bolt

I recently put a new bumper on my '89. I had to take out the bolts that connect the frame to the tub to slide a reinforcement bar through. When I went to tighten the left side bolt, it snapped. Half of the bolt is still in there. I got a new bolt to put in, but the old one is still stuck in there. Does anyone know how I can get this out?

Is there enough sticking out to grab it with some vise grips and take it out?

Also, you could grind it flat, drill it out, and put a Heli-Coil in.

Use an easy out if you can.
