I literally broke my breaker bar trying to get that freaking nut off. I ended up getting a cheap 12 volt impact wrench from walmart. Had that sucker off in five seconds flat. I wish I'd gone that route to begin with, and I strongly recommend that to the OP. It cost me $30 and has saved me untold time and hassle.
2003 WJ in Jeep Green Metallic, 4.0/242/4.10's. 4" Teraflex springs w/ RE monotube shocks and IRO short arms, cheap intake w/ amsoil filter, 2.5" hi flow cat and back exhaust, lots of lights and other misc crap.
Got a impact wrench, torque wrench.
Got a 36mm socket from Sears and it's too big.
OK got a 36mm 6pt. from the parts store and it fits much better. Still loose.
Soaked it earlier with Kroil Kreeping Oil. (love this stuff) And Nut came right off. (nuts been on there for 10yrs.)
