We tried and ended up rounding the edges of the nut and at the time was the only thing we could think of.

Got around to taking care of my broken skid plate nuts. I found that hammering on an open end 9/16" wrench through the side opening will hold the broken nut so the bolt can be removed.
Everyone calls it stripped bolts but its actually a broken nut retainer. I went to NAPA and bought some one piece nut clips (M10x1.5) to replace the OEM style. Also, the torque is listed as 35 ft lbs. I seems that they just run the bolts on at the factory with no regards for the spec's.
Anyway, that problem is solved.
R,
HAP
