Are the threads stripped or the actual bolt head?

HMmmm Sure you got the correct PLUG. Don't most have a square hole for 1/2" ratchet

If you can grab the bolt while prying outward at the same time
Replace with expandable freeze plug if ya have to

for sure it is a square drive for a 3/8" socket. stripped to all hell. and TIGHT. I'm going to try to JB weld a socket extension in today, then hit the area around it with penetrating oil and the propane torch for a few minutes before I throw the cheater bar on it and try to get it free.
I hope it works.
