Stripped steering box

Hi I have 96 XJ sport! So I bought nice bumper and went to put it on jeep. Broke all three bolts going into steering box and got them out. Then ordered new steering box spacer. When I went to put all the stuff on I stripped the internal threads of the steering box. Does anyone have any suggestions to mounting this back up!
