Ive sprayed all the nuts about four times, twice last night and twice right before i started but i cant get them off. I got two off, one i started cutting the top with an angle grinder and i think i loosened it but i dont know and the other i was able to get the ratchet on then i managed to get it started by pushing the ratchet with my foot but i cant do that with all of them. I really need some help.
I think grinding off the heads will be faster than drilling. Have you tried a breaker bar? I use a fence post to extend it to give me more leverage, but sometimes that bends and you have to find something thicker.

i recently removed the bed off my mitsu and while its a completely different bolting system ( the heads dont go through the bed itself) i wound up heating the worst ones with the torch a little. since its japanese, it is obviously all metric and i dont have an extensive collection of metric tools so i had to use a 3/8 ratchet for it and i used 3 different short pieces of pipe, which one depended on how much room i had to work in. cranked all 8 of em off in under 1 hour

I tried to take the bed off my truck a few months back, and couldn't get the bolts loose. They're brand new bolts and nuts because I'm the one that put them on when I was installing the body lift. I don't know how in the hell I got them so tight, because I can't budge them now, even with a cheater bar. haha
