do you have a long extention going down through the two holes in the rad support to get to the top of the bolt????
use a big breaker bar fron the top and it will either break or turn

We got er dun, 33's go on today. Are these tires even gonna fit? . They're kinda bald anyway.

Also, we snapped one of the 2 rear body bolts, so most of it is still in the old mount....what do we do, torch it out and replace the factory mount?
