Exclamation HELP!!! Removing exhaust

I am installing an MBRP exhaust, I have gotten almost all of the old exhaust removed except the front peice in front of the muffler. I just can't get that sucker off. I think it's because the indentation on the pipe where the clamp sits. How did others get it off? Any ideas would be helpful!

And it's a 2012 ram with the 5.7

Spray with PB Blaster, Use a 2x4 and a hammer and tap it off.

I have it loose now. Just still seems to be caught on the crimped part of the pipe. Hammer and 2x4 haven't worked yet, but I'm still trying

Unfortunately, I don't have a saw to do it, or the skill/knowledge/welder to put it back together so the new exhaust would fit right
