Body Tub Mounting Bolts
Any reason why the front bolts won't come out all the way? They just spin and spin and hang!!!
If it's like older Jeeps, it's a captured nut. After a while the piece that "captures" the nut on the end of the bolt breaks free and spins with the nut. If you're wrenching on a 2011 I can't see how that could've happened already though.

No powerball here? How am I supposed to finance the mods?!?

Yup, she's a 2011, the rear and middle ones come out, but the front ones just spin. Never took too much time to really look into it - I'm presuming some sort of captured nut arrangement. I was just taking them out, antiseizing and torquing back up while I was listening to tunes, drinking beer, and otherwise wasting time in the garage. Perhaps if I put some downward weight onto the bolt head with an open-end wrench and use an impact/air wrench they'd come out.
Pretty much all of mine do that now. I just grab the washer and give it some downward pressure and they come free without much trouble. The ones all the way at the rear and the front don't have those big washers like the middle ones do (I don't think)...same concept though.
