Theres definately a knack to removing these frozen rusty bolts,I thought spinach helped, especially if you let it sit on the nut/bolt for a few days!!
Someone else on here told me its actually a nutsert.My friend @ VW can bring one home and I can try that.
Liquid wrench,work the bolts/nut back and fourth and the torch have become my friends.

Seriously, if you are that concerned about it you have three options,
One, holesaw in the side of the rail big enough to get a nut and wrench in this could weaken the frame a good bit you would want a patch on it......
Two, drill a hole through the frame rail top and install a crush sleeve, this would require drilling a hole in the tub to drop a bolt in or removing the tub, or cut the bolt exact and instll it nut on the top rail
Three, use a 1/2" thick bar to drill and tap for a nut that wont spin insid the frame rail,and good luck fighting it to the right spot......

Sometimes, a smile can be the best contribution.
Especially in the absence of any real help.

the saga continues,help!
New to the jeep community after buying a 99 Sahara.
First I decided to Herculine the interior,while removing the rear seat stancions 3 of the 4 bolts snapped!
It needed a new suspension ,so I went with an OME 2.5 suspension kit. Found out the jeep had a 1 3/4" coil spring spacer lift kit. So I decided to start the install. I had to cut the 1 3/4" spacers off ,extra 30 mins. While removing the drivers side rear shock a bolt snapped!,while removing the passenger rear bumpstop that bolt snapped!!,while installing the transfercase drop one of the drivers side nuts(tack welded) inside the frame rail came off!!!
all the bolts were soaked in liquid wrench?
Anyone have any ideas on what to do with the nut that holds the transfer case? Is 5 of the 6 good enough? Im anal and would prefer a bolt there.
