Your almost done, just take the bumper off, and the brackets with the nuts will slide out.

Yep, I was thinking the first two. Are you working on the third bolt from the back of the jeep? I had no problem with that one. I'll take a look tomorrow evening, and see what's up.

That's the last one in . It's just tacked on the inside . Couple good contacts and it should pop right off .

I wrap a nut tight with tie-wire and feed it back in those places . New hardware always tightens up nice and easy doing it this way .

I mean they've been hit a good number of times already but I'll try more now that I'm out

Edit; yeah since the extractor is in there it's not moving or making much of a progress in busting it out. This thing is hella seized. My father wants to take a torch to it and heat it red hot then let it cool and repeat I believe

If you heat it up with a torch, hit it with a punch while it's red hot. It'll be easier to shear it off. Just make sure you have some good heat resistant gloves on.
