I was hoping to install my new fog light kit and even using hand tools, managed to strip one of the 4 bolts in the modular bumper. Any suggestions? If I do have to cut/drill it out, is there anyplace I can order a replacement bolt from?

What is stripped? The head or the thread?

By using a torque wrench, I felt I had the proper leverage and grip, and didn’t strip any bolts.

Clamp a pair of vise grip pliers on the bolt and remove it.

So the end result ended up by buying a better torx plus adapter got it out no problem.
