He could be talking about the ones that hold the case together?

If the bolt did lose it's threads then clamp a set of vise grips on the bolt and pull it out while turning it. Good Luck!!!

sorry i wasnt clear.

one of the bolts that holds the cross member to the body of the jeep lost its threads and just spins.

i figured id try to get a crow bar between my body and cross member to apply pressure to the bolt.

try an open end wrench to apply downward pressure on the bolt while you spin it with a ratchet.... good luck!!

Theres a nut welded inside the frame rail for those.. It probably broke loose..

Same thing happened to me, when chaning my transmission.

I cut a *small* access hole right beside it so i could get a wrench on a new nut and fixed it that way..
