Issue removing middle body mounting bolt for sidebar

Hello All,

I have a 2013 Unlimited Sport and I am installing my Rampage sidebar. I am able to remove the front body mounting bolts but on both sides when I try to remove the middle bolt it loosens part way then it spins and I cannot get the bolt to loosen any farther - any thoughts?

Use a screwdriver or anything to but downward pressure on the bolt while you turn it. They seem to hang up on most folks. But, they'll come out eventually.
