Any recommendations on removing these two torx bolts that hold the tailgate hinge to the body on the drivers side? I’ve been at it for about 2 hours and they won’t budge.

^^ This. And make sure the bit is the right size with zero slop. I’ve made that mistake several times… One size under on Torx will still fit and turn the bolt, but it will strip out the bolt or break the bit when using an impact.

Yes. I’ve tried the impact, heat. Two cans of PB Blaster. Correct torx bit. I’m about to cut off the bracket, since I have a new one.

Try soaking bolts with anti seize spray fluids??
I'll try to post a pix of specific brand ...but it works bigtime.
