Tricks to removing tailgate hinges

Got the kits from RDS like Ron told me to Looked at a photo and gote one hinge apart so it all makes sense. I can't get my bottom hinge apart. I have a flat head for the top and pliers for the bottom nut. The head on the screw is torn up so the screwdiver won't stay put. Any ideas on how to take this apart? The heads on the bolts for the hinges to the body are close to stripped and I don't think I have a bit to take them out.

Of course the simple project turns into the mess. The top hinge parts were a rusty mess so I can only imagine the bottom will be the same. Do I need to add any grease or oil to this when I put it back together?
