Yeah breaking all five sucks to be sure, but that was obviously the only way that seat was coming outta there. I don't really understand why anything less than grade 8 hardware would be used for anything attached to the floor of a tub of a Jeep. One of the lesser mysteries of American Motors Corporation...


The problem with Jeeps is that everyone fancies himself some kind of Adventurer after he buys one. As if courage, or ruggedness, can be had for a mere $27,745 MSRP

Installing my lift & new suspension involved a lot of tools of destruction, BFH, cutting things permanently, etc. So we'll see.

@ILoveMyJeep— reducing road noise? LOL

Let's see, 35" tires— check. Holy floorpan— check. Straight pipe, no muffler— check. Original 1978 steel body with various aged structures which basically functions as a resonator chamber for the straight six— check. Manual transmission which I gun whenever the inclination so strikes me or whenever someone in a cozy 4-door JK minivan with a painstakingly-detailed glossy spare on the back pulls up— check. If only a lil' gasket had a prayer of 'reducing road noise.' Haha I don't mind it at all though, it's really a part of my machine. When the Jeep is talking, everyone else kinda gets quiet.
it was a joke lol

sorry its kind of hard to show your kidding when all you can do is type... =P

Some say the glass is half empty, Some say the glass is half full, I say "are you gonna drink that?"
Where there's a will, there are five hundred relatives.
For Sale: Parachute. Only used once, never opened, small stain.

If you can get some one to help you have them hit the bolt from inside of the Jeep with a propane touch. This will keep the flame away from the fuel tank since you are worried about it. If you broke the heads off I think you will need heat to get these out.

As for vise-grips they may work, but I would use a pipe wrench. Use the biggest on you can get on the. The have better bite then vise-grips.

Between Heat and a pipe wrench they should come right out.

Probably the same reason they used duct tape on all the wiring harness splices lol.
