If you ever get the wheel off, you need to take the axle out and check the C-clip and cross-pin. Beating on the center hub can damage the part's inside of your differential.
I would place a long block of wood under the axle and chock the wheel on the other side and front, pop the clutch in first and reverse a few times to break it free.
Good luck.

1- put in reverse, go a little and SLAM on the brakes... then drive forward a bit and SLAM on the brakes

2- block wheels, jack up and see if the wheel is any looser

repeat step 1 as necessary, as eventually it'll break the rust bond and spin on the hub

good luck

I really don't get beating on the end of the axle. Generally you want to beat the wheel outward, not the Jeep inward.

But I also understand frustration. Time to walk away for the day.

When I could not remove the wheels on mine I had to get creative. For the fronts I jacked up the wheel a little and a foot long piece of 2X4 was placed between the frame and the front of the tire. Then turning the steering wheel into the 2x4 the wheel popped right off. For the rears I again jacked up the wheel with a floor jack and then using my high lift and a piece of 4x4. I jacked against the wheel and it also popped off. Good luck, Dave.

Like most have said above, now that the edges of that hub are all jacked, that rim won't come off anyway now. I'm betting its acting like a wedge and holding that rim on there for good now. Is it not possible to just pull the diff cover and drop the pin and c clip and pull the shaft and hub and drum all at the same time? If this can be done, I would try and find one in the JY to grab a new shaft out of. Then I could do anything I need to in order to get that rim off of the hub. Just an idea if you have the funds for that.

Got enough room to stick a jack between the frame ( or springs ) and the wheel?

Wow... That's a mess.

Please do not move this vehicle in this condition. As said earlier, put it on a jack stand, but just barely clear the ground with it (an inch or less).

Once this is done, use an angle grinder with a flap disc (not a grinder) 36 grit will cut just as fast, but if you're careful, it shouldn't dig like a grinder will. Go around the outside of the "beaten and abused" end of your axle (the metal will come off much faster than you think). Once it's relatively flush (you won't be able to get it all the way back to the wheel), put a short piece of 4x4 lumber against the bottom of the tire (yes, on the outside) and smack the %^&* out of it with a sledge hammer.

Due to the leverage, hitting on the outside is just as effective as hitting from the inside, but from the outside, you can actually get a good swing on it. Once it starts to work loose, just spin it a quarter turn and whack it some more. It'll come off, but it isn't going to be a fun evening.

I cut it off. I heated it till it was red hot and it still wouldn't budge. I heated it and shot water at it I tried everything. So I cut it off.
