tiny terror I used a long breaker bar with a pipe to take the bolts out. Took a hell of a lot to get 'em out. And my tow hook in the back bolted onto the bottom of the frame, one with a nut inside. Required... one of those bent wrenches.

TJ01 If you've had any work done at a shop, take it there. They should be happy to loosen them for you. That's what I did. Or you could take it to the dealership or other shop. Eventually you should invest in a set of craftsman torx bits. I am still waiting for a quote from Slim and Jims tools on a set. I think you may be able to get them at Sears, maybe even K-Mart.
