110 rear crossmember bolt trouble

In the process of trying to remove my factory tow hitch I broke one of the two large bolts and need some input. I actually think I broke the tack welded nuts on the inside as it just broke free and would spin. I had to cut the bolt to get the hitch off and wouldn't really care if I wasn't trying to mount a recovery point there. My question is can I access the back side of this bolt if I drop the tank or is it boxed and I'm f'd?

Thanks!

Boxed in on mine
You're going to need to do some cutting & welding
Nothing is unsolvable.

On mine it went all the way through. You can probably tell by the length of the one you removed which it is.

Its a td5 erra truck if that makes any difference but i'll check the bolt length tomorrow but i think it does not go through. Sucks if its boxed in but the rear cross member is pretty punky so may be a reason to replace it.

I think earlier ones went all the way through.

Worth Following up that I decided to replace the whole thing and found MIB Offroad http://miboffroad.co.uk/ makes factory spec crossmembers but in 3mil for added strength. Ordered bare steel as I read they are not known for quality paint and I'll have it galvanized anyways. Arrived within two weeks and looks great!

Drop the tank and get to the other side. Fix the bolt and maybe realize the crossmember is just too bad to keep.
