I am trying to remove the body/tub of my 1978 CJ-5. The body bolts are just spinning in place. I can feel a "flat" nut spinning on/in the frame. Any idea on how to remove the bolts?

See ya,
1978 CJ-5

I've had the best luck using a 4 1/2" angle grinder to cut off the heads or the nuts. The bolts are usually too rusty to take apart. You'll be making a lot of trips to the hardware to buy various grade 8 nuts, bolts, and washers. Buy them at the places that sell them by the pound, like a farm supply store.
