Cant Remove Body Mount Bolts
All of the nuts that are supposed to be connected to the frame are breaking off before I can loosen the bolts. Will I have any major issues if I just cut the bolts?
It's only money!

Are you going to just replace the body mounts? If you're going to have the body off for a while, you can cut the bolts if you're willing to cut the body open to remove the old "nuts" and replace them.
Vibration? Bump steer? Wandering? Read the article (sticky) on Steering, suspension, and driveline.
Yea, they are spinning in the body. The body is coming off to try and replace the front crossmember. Every time I remove a part from under the tub, I get a hand full of beach sand. Once I get the body off, I will decide if it is worth repairing. To replace the old nuts, do I just weld in new (actual) nuts?

Having same problem and we decided to flip tub on it's side. Leave the bolt in and clean area around the base. Next hold bolt with channel locks and center it while pulling it firmly towards you. Next weld it tight. Now you can remove the bolt and you didn't have to cut into the channels under your tub. Hope this helps.
