bolt problem not really jeep oriented

I was hoping somebody could help me out with this. I bought a 4xrac to mount my hi-lift to the bumper. A couple of weeks ago i decided to take the hi-lift and move it into the cab. Now i have the 4xrac things still on. I got one off (4 bolts). I got 3 of the 4 bolts off on the other one bu the 4th one is stuck or something like it. Everything seems to be turning right but the stupid thing will not come out. I went to home depot and bought metal blades to fit the sawsall. I tried to cut the bolt off but that didnt work. Is there anybody out there that can tell me what i need to do in order to get this bolt off?
Thanks

You can't get to the nut on the other side to prevent it from spinning with a wrench?

When you have a choice, buy American.

i can get a hold of both the nut on one side and the actual bolt head. I hold the nut tight and use a socket wrench to try and get the bolt out. I can turn and turn but nothing happens.
Thanks

Is the bolt threaded all the way to the head? If not and it has a smooth portion you may, emphasis on may, have ran the nut past the thread. You would have had to put some serious torque on it if the bolt was a softer grade. Ive seen it happen on some airplane components, but pretty rare. If thats the case just saw-zaw it off. Or attempt to anyway. Odds are this probably isn't the case but just a possibility. Good Luck.

Or if the non-threaded portion of the shank was a smaller diameter than the threads it could have ran off.
