Boken Bolts

I'm a novice mechanic at best. I've got a bed liner project going on with my '01 TJ and I've broke off two bolts. After buying and destroying a bolt extractor kit from Autozone I'm wondering if I should have gone to Sears. Any suggestions?

I dont know how large (diameter) of a bolt you are trying to remove however when you use an extractor it pushes out on the bolt to get a good grip...and thus tightens up the bolt to hole....being carefull try drilling out larger in sucsession holes in the bolt, if its a fairly large dia you may be able once there is just a thin shell left to peel it away using a small chisel and light hammer taps...other option just drill out and re tap.
