Windshield Threads gone. How do i fix?

The threads that the windshield brackets bolt to are trashed. It's a 09 JKRU. What do I do? I can't mount rack, light bar, anything. I'm stumped and can't find info. It's a daily driver so I don't want to take it apart until I have a plan.
Help!

Drill and retap. No problem.

That sounds easier. I was told to take a little hole saw and open the inside up and go from there. You happen to have an web sites or videos for referene

I installed my led light bar bracket under my corner windshield light mounts, and when i started tightening i grabbed a few threads then it popped, I ended up going to a fastenal and getting a longer bolt to grab more threads and tightened it, and it worked.
