I had it happen on one of my cab mounts for my body lift. The only alternative we had that worked was drilling out the bolt, and then re-threading the hole.

Don't remember too well, that weekend is all a blur. It shouldn't take more than a couple of hours.

We figured out what thread the bolt was, went to Sears and bought a thread tapping set, and the set listed which drill bit to use for the bolt.

Probably spinning the nuts on the bottom of the bolts. Take a huge set of channel locks and grab ahold of it while someone tries to break it loose.

I have some BIGASS channelocks and they worked fine for me.

Are you using an impact? I used my 1/2" matco impact and I only had to hold one of those nut things on the bottom of the truck, and thats because I used my 3/8" impact on it first...it turned it too slow.

ah man don't do that, Just sit underneath the truck and have everyone brainstorm, all you have to do is figure out how to hold it from spinning and they'll come out peice of cake, and there's only 4 since yours is a reg cab.

Also if ya don't mind me asking, I'm taking my body lift off, could I have your stock hardware? I lost all of my stock bolts.

"but mines a lot newer" :P :P

On mine, i didnt really have any troubles. I used an impact up top, and my bro held a socket to the nut on the underside. And for the front ones i just used a pair of visegrips, and it came loose too.
