Easier to remove hub with axle in place, in the axle housing.
Start soaking the hub spline area(both sides)with penetrating oil. May need to remove the axle nut for this.

We had the same problem doing an AMC20 last year. It seemed that the more force that we applied, the more stubborn the axle was. Ultimately, what worked was, after soaking the bearing with penetrating oil, as Lumpy stated, was to get a couple of large screwdrivers or pry bars behind the backing plate, one on each side, and pry while someone else whacked the hub flange from behind. Once the axle starts to move, you might need to put a small block of wood under the pry bar to maintain leverage. After working on these axles for several hours, once we took this approach, the axles slid out in a matter of minutes. Pry only as much as will not distort the backing plate.

Thanks, I'll keep working at it then. Just frustrating after other axle came out just as it should have

Ya, we actually thought that we were going to have to call off a group trail ride because the axle would not come out. But a little gentle persuasion, and the trail ride was back on! Good luck!

Success! Got the hub off today, axle pulled out, so good to go. Ended up buying a new puller - an OTC - much beefier than the other I had - brand was CTA tools - and pulled the hub right off. Price difference was minimal, should have just gotten this one in the first solace. I included a pic to show the difference between the arms of the 2. Anyway, have a little rust removal and painting to do on the rear of that side of the chassis now that everything is out of the way, and then I will be on to the rear differential, installing the new one piece axles, and installing the last of the new yj springs. Getting there slowly but surely, appreciate the help.
