    Ok well i was starting to take off the body bolts so i can get ready to put my body lift on, and when i impacted the bolt it didnt go anywhere, It loosed up a little bit and keeps spinning. The ones i am talking about are the third set from the front, in the floor right infront of the seat.

    I have cut up and replaced my floors before so peeling up the carpet and cutting a little square is no big deal. My main issue, is should i remove the box that the nut is in? What can i replace it with?

    Thanks guys.

    other than the obvious tackwelding the new bolt down in there and patching over the hole, you could also holesaw it, rip the cage out and thru-bolt em.. using a removable plug in it for access...
