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.

Retorque to 175ftlbs when you reassemble. That number is critical to the life of your wheel bearings.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

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.)
