Replacing clutch, Need help!

My clutch has been slipping pretty badly, lately. So I decided to replace the clutch with a Luk clutch kit and while I have the transmission/transfer case out im going to do a SYE kit also.
Everything was going smooth until I got to the 2 top bolts on the bell housing. My jeep is a 2000 with the 4.0L and a NV3550. I ended up rounding off the bolt on the drivers side. I dont want to do the same to the passenger side bolt as its a lot harder to access. Any tips on how I should go about it?

Thanks

Are they torx bolts or something? What are you using to take them out, are you sure you are using the right size tools/socket? Anyway after you get them out you can go to a hardware store and replace them with new bolts.

It looks to be a reverse torx bolt, I was using a 12 point socket. It felt snug when I had it on there, but I guess it is probably my own fault for not using the proper tool. I will be replacing them with new bolts though.

Get yourself a set of reverse Torx sockets. You probably didn't strip it out as bad as you think. I had the same issue and once I put the proper socket on it came right out. Even after the 12 point socket slipped on it
