95YamJam If it is the rear most mount.....

If you look up in there just behind the rounded body corner you can cut open the channel where the captive square is. It is just a sqaure piece of steel with a nut welded to it.

If you cut the botom and both sides you can peel open the area and get the old "nut" out. Then make a new one and your set. You can close the sheetmetal and weld it shut or just tack it shut and lave it. You won't see it on the outsdie anyway.

Mine did the same on the driver side. I sprayed a bunch of rust stuff in there, tacked mine shut and hit it with some black paint. You can't see it at all and even if I showed it to you you might not notice it.

Just be carefull when cutting and take your time.

Jerkyboy68 Its the passenger side rear. I was wondering if it went into the frame or a captive nut. It looks like a blind area. Trying easy out tonight.

Thanks!

brentd711 If the bolt broke I can't see that it matters right now whether it's threaded into the frame or into a captive nut (if that's your question). Drill it, heat it and use the biggest easy-out the bolt will handle.

help with body mount bolt

Well I started the install of my new rampage bumper and while trying to get good access to a nut holding the bumper on, I decided to loosen the bolt going up through the mount and SNAP! It broke. I don't have a haynes or FSM and I can't tell if there is a nut on the other side. Is it just a bolt screwed in from the bottom?
