Can't remove Dana 35 C clips with a Detroit locker. HELP!!!!

Just like the title says. I know how its "supposed to work" I've done it before on non-locked axles. But I just CAN'T get the axle to budge!

I've gone so far as to use ratcheting tie downs, and a hammer and still nothing!

So what am I doing wrong??

Your basically right. turned out to be an early xj axle, D35 non c-clip. I didnt even realize they made a non c-clip 35 so the thought never even crossed my mind to take off the backing plate bolts and pull.
