Stripped bolt-head issues.

SO I set about changing my exhaust manifolds, and when I pulled the pass. side one off I notinc that the lower rear bolt hole has been stripped and helicoiled... and when I tried to install a bole in it, I realized the helicoil is f'ed up. So do I have any options other than a new head???

I got your JEEP thing, now it hurts when I pee!!

Depending on the situation, you may just be able to put a new helicoil in. That's the most likely scenario in my experience.
