Angry getting 3500 rear brake drum off borderline impossible

I am tryting to check/change my rear brake drums on my B3500 van and it appears I need to take my axle shaft out once I get the tires off. After I take the axle rods out there is a HUGE nut that I cannot get off or find a socket big enough to turn it. Is there a trick to this that I am missing? HELP

Netman66 will become famous soon enough

No trick. You need that axle nut wrench. The drum is held on with the hub.

Some heavy equipment places lend out tools with a deposit.
