Need help with ZJ crossmember ASAP

: I am in the finishing stages of the replacement of the rear trans seal on the zj. When putting the crossmember bolts back in one of the bolts became crossthreaded and is now stuck half way in. Can I drive it with just 3??? The other is still kinda in.

I was looking at nutserts on here....looks like I could drill out the hole and put one of those in. Any recommendations?

Well ok....so I drilled out a new hole next to the existing and tapped it for a larger grade 8 bolt. Seems to be fine. Just ground the broken one down a bit.
