In a bone headed move I grabbed the wrong bolts when installing the rough country tire carrier plate for larger wheels. I ended up stripping most of the threads going through the door.

I need some advice, I can add a nut on the interior and think keep or increase the strength, use expoxy to fix the threads or replace the door. The last being the most expensive.
Do you thinking adding a nut on the other side is safe ?

Nut and washer should do nicely

If it were my Jeep, I'd use a helicoil to fix it.
