A grinder with a cutoff wheel, would be the safest method.

The bolt goes into the frame no way to get at it. I was going to cut the head off and just use 3 bolts on one site or just have someone do a weld on the one spot. Any input on this. Thanks

On the stripped bolt, did you/they try taking the other bolts out and pull on the tow hook, to put pressure on bolt, while trying to back it out? If that doesn't work, cut the head off and put the hitch on with three on one side. The towing capacity is not large enough that it should cause a problem. The hitch I have on mine uses only two of the mounting bolts from the tow hook and you drill a extra hole on the frame for a third mount.

Is it one of the bottom ones or one on the side. There are weld nuts inside the frame those bolts go into. If it's one of the ones on the side, you can drill an access hole opposite and be able to get a socket to hold it in place to remove it. One on the bottom you might be able to drill an access hole forward of it to sneak a wrench in to hold the nut.
