Rust sucks!!!

Ok, so I have a 2000 Jeep grand cherokee limited, with the 4.7L that I bought in Akron, OH, (the rust belt!) and, of course, every bolt is rusted!!!
I have a possible wheel bearing problem and, I know, needs a new c.v. joint. The problem is that one of the bolts holding the wheel assembly on is so rusted, we ended up rounding the head of the bolt and can't get it off. Any suggestions on how to remove a stripped bolt, given very little space?

I second that ... this is one of those things that you don't use to often but when you do ... OMG glad I have those little suckers. Saved me probably at least a half a dozen times. Must have IMHO.
