Get tension on the pitman tool, then use a BFH on the arm end. If you are worried about the tool popping off you might add a c-clamp to keep it from spreading off. As a last resort (assuming you can think of more resorts than my BFH and clamp ideas), cut it off with an angle grinder and get a new pitman.

When I removed mine I thought something was about to break but I kept going and it eventually popped loose.

Just to make sure cut it with a cut off wheel parallel to the shaft.

after messing with mine for a while i gave in and cut it with a angle grinder....i was careful to go just before the splines then one whack with a BFH while under tension and it went flying.

Your best friend on a Jeep, a 2.5 pound one is nice, but I even have a 5 pounder. Big Freaking Hammer = BFH
