Courtney.Lundin Chisel chisel chisel. This is where I've gotten so far. It's literally hanging on by I don't even know what. It wiggles like crazy, but doesn't seem to want to come off.

I don't know about yours, and it's gonna sound really simple if I'm right, but try turning the bolts the other direction. Mine were reverse threaded ('97 Sport) and would just keep turning non-stop when turned following the good ol' "lefty loosey" style. It wasn't until after I used a chisel and a hammer to beat one of the end nuts off that I realized this, then the other three came of in less than 10 seconds each. I had literally spent 2 hours trying to get the first one off. None of my friends had any ideas either. Try it, it might just work.
