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...

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

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.
