What, did you change your name?
Are you looking to save the shaft? Mine spun, but I couldn't remove it either, so I had to get ruthless. I put the Scrambler in 4Lo, left the front hubs unlocked, and put the front against a parking barrier. Then I let out the clutch, and when the Swampers stopped hopping, the rear axle blew hard. I left the nut a little loose so the tire wouldn't fall off, and it worked like a charm. Be careful with putting it back on, at 400 ft-lbs it's easy to jerk the breaker bar and snap the threads off the axle or strip the nut. Smooth easy pressure is the key, with some Loctite of course.
