I should be able to re-tap those nutserts right? Would that be the best way to get the skid plate bolted back on?

1 of 2 things happend with the nuts in the frame when the PO had it. The bolts broke when trying to remove them, or the threads were so bad the bolts wouldn't hold. Retapping the nuts with the same size tap won't help if its the latter. The next size up tap could be used to cut new threads.

I saw the same thing happen with a '97 TJ with 137,xxx miles on it. The bottom of the frame was rotten.
