Long story short. The bolts that hold on the stock TJ skid plate/crossmember.... They dont go into a nut. Jeep used a tube looking thing with threads in it.(I'll try to get a picture up) I don't know how it attaches inside the frame but I broke one loose, therefore the bolt has nothing to thread into. Any ideas on how to fix this? There is already one bolt broke off (I didnt do it) so I am currently down to 4. I would really like to fix this one if I can. The only access hole to the inside of the frame is about 6 inches to the front of the vehicle, nothing directly to the side or on top. Why don't they used something heavier than this? Anyway, ideas?

If you can weld: I'd say take the whole thing down, and make the hole big enough for a nut to go in, and then weld it in place.
