Body Mount Broken Bolts Yeah....Another

I've read so many treads on broken body mount bolts my eyes are crossing. Broke 3 on my 16 yo sons 98 TJ installing 1-1/4" body lift and we have 10 days to get this thing road worthy for him to take his drivers test. The drivers and passenger behind the frons seats I finally cut the bubble in the tub and removed the nut certs and welded square washers in place. Those are done. I have one on the passenger side under the seat...... I've read and read and just can't find the best way to cut in above this to replace w/ a nut. Can I just cut in from the side of the sub as shown in the picture? Where I wiped dirt off w/ my finger. Then weld the sub back up?

I'm making the kid turn all the wrenches himself and learn how to work on this thing. I did the cutting on the fenders and he bolted the fronts and himself. I really really need to get this bolt out for him....

I drilled the nutsert from below. Accessed through the floor with a bimetal hole saw. Will rivet or self tap a piece of sheet metal to cover after using a nut to attach body mount. Silicone to keep from vibrating. Rhino line black. This one was in front of the drivers seat.

Is it the one under the front right side of the passenger seat? You'd be going through 2 layers, but I'd think with some careful measuring, you'd be able to get it from above.

Fronts and rears are Barricade. Went w/ the tubs w/ flares on the fronts.....EASY install! The kid really enjoyed that mod. The body lift....so far not so much! LOL. I know there are pics of these and the Smittybilts that are like them on here. I do have pics if you want them. There were some good videos on Youtube to help also.

OK...I may just measure it out and take a 2" hole saw to the 2 layers of metal.

OpieDP,
Did you drill thru the bolt staging your bit sizes ending w/ a 1/2" or 9/16"?
