Ive been beating my driveshaft (hehe) for hours and cannot get the damn thing to pop loose. I'm ready to hit the thing with a torch. I've done the following:

BFH
Even BFierH
Penetrating oil. I got it in there real deep-like.
MAPP torch on the flange until things started to smoke and glow
Put the Jeep in gear and tried spinning it off

It's just done stuck. I think there's magic east-coast road salt rust that has permanently fused the shaft to the flange.
Any other ideas?

Strap the DS with all the retaining bolts on the rear diff out, so it can't move then put the JK in drive or reverse with your foot on the brake and load the fuel pedal..
You should be able to break the bond it has then..

I should have done all this while it was on the ground... and still had a front axle... :D
