I broke off not one but two seized bolts from my rock sliders...... What method is best for removing them so I can replace with new bolts in the frame body?

My rock sliders are like new, but I’m at the point that buying new ones and paying the shop to install may be my best option if I can’t get the old bolts out. Kind of a “here you deal with it” situation

If I can get them out, what is the thread size to replace with?

Are they Mopar factory rock sliders?

If so, the nuts to the pinch seam are: Mopar 6104725AA Nut & Washer, M6x1.00

And the bolts to the body frame are: Mopar 6105103AA Hex Head Screw, M8x1.25x30.00

Also no need to pay a shop to reinstall for you, they're extremely easy to install on your own.

It’s removing the broken bolts I’m struggling with. I figure paying for new replacement sliders may be easiest solution, but obviously not cheapest. Not sure who makes them.... I will get pictures.

Broke 1 off installing Rubi rails, it is a hardened bolt, attempted to back out with extractors.. finally drilled out, tapped the hole next size larger (don't remember bolt size) installed grade 5 bolt.. Should I have to do it again I would just drill it out and TAP save the time and breaking the back out bit.

I guess that's where I am..... I will need to drill them out I suppose. it seems like the threaded parts it bolts into aren't "fixed" and they have play...... I wasn't sure they could be drilled larger etc.... I wouldn't even know where to begin with what size to drill to, what bolts to use, etc.... I really think if I drill them out, I won't be able to reattach..... wish I had a welder.

The ends, that I don’t have pictures of, are close-ended square tubing. It does attach to underside and pinch seam

EDIT: last pic shows the end of it I guess.

The bolt head is 5/8 socket.. I drilled out the broken bolt, tapped the hole for this grade 5 bolt. Be sure to tap with same thread as the bolt.. fine or course.
