    i just posted this but im not sure where it went so ill try again.

    as i aws taking off the bumper of the new 1990 jeep 2 bolts cracked off in the frame, they are attached to nuts that are welded on the inside of the frame, i can not drill them, or air hammer them out, or even break off the nut from the inside of the frame.

    im thinking that i will have to cut it with a torch, but since the mount has to be flush with the outside of the frame any welding i do to repair the frame has to be flush with the orig frame.... what do you think that i should do?

    okay itll be a sec before i figure out how in hell to get the pics up, bear with me

    i think that this is it...

    this is a pic of my jeep

    the below ones are the pics of my frame delema,

    Jeep plow mounting

    I have a 95 YJ jeep with a Meyer plow. The mounting hardware are different than anything I have ever seen. The hardware or bolt what ever you call it is hard steel. I had to cut mine out, repair frame and install new hardware. The bolt package was big money. I repaired frame and reinforced the frame been good to go for over one season. Get the install manual from the plow mfg and see what they have designed. That should make life easier.

    If you can;t drill them you need a torch. Welding flush is no big deal- any compatent welder can do that. You flange the base surface for the patch to rest in and grind the weld flush after it's done.
    I hate to recomend this these days, but having the frame welded to the jeep frame would solve the problem- but it's not coming back off.

    yeah i considered welding it to the jeep, but the whole damn jeep cost me $350 and i really dont expect it to go more than one season, and without that mount, or some kick ass fabrication job, my conventional plow would be a big ol' paperweight
