Chrysler 8.25 Cross Shaft trouble

i can't get the cross shaft retaining bolt out. No luck with a box wrench. Nor a ratchet. Nor an impact. Nor vice grips. Or nut / hex head expander. I'm now going to be removing the rear axle so i can try to either

1) Drive the cross shaft through and shear the bolt
2) Turn the head of the bolt off and then drill it out (im not sure there is enough clearance
3) Put heat to it
4) Hack the carrier up and replace the carrier.

Anyone got any advice before i go to the extremes? The bolt hasn't turned at all and we were putting some pretty serious torque on it to no avail. I didn't want to put heat on it with it that close to my gas tank and no fire extinguisher in the house.
