Long breaker bar with correct size 6 point socket. If its stripped Visegrips and a hammer.
My son had his done one winter and the shop overtightened it so he took it back to them and HAD them loosen it. At the same time he had them make sure the filter was also not to tight.

When you get it off with the breaker bar replace it with a new one. Only a buck or two at Pep Boys or Advance.

A pipe wrench and a couple wacks with the BFH works pretty well too.

I think thats what got him into this thread in the first place. Hows about a torque wrench.

Curious how you got it so tight the first time.

PB Blaster + breaker bar or use your leg for more torque on the wrench.

Ahhh miss understood your first post thought this was your second time changing the oil in the jeep lol.

If worst comes to worst and you can't get it I would try and get an impact wrench to loosen it.
