Default 2010 Ram front axle removal

So I have the service manual and tried what it said, prying the CV joint off the spline at the transfer case. I cannot for the life of me get the axle off. Im about out of options and cannot get it off. Tried PB Blaster on it but that didnt help (even though its not dirty or corroded in ANY way, I live in Vegas no rust here).

Is there any tips someone has to get it off? Im about sick of this damn thing.

2 options that i can think of

PB BLASTER & a torch
or buy some AERO KROIL at a gun store, if needed apply heat
KROIL is almost the best penetrant that you can buy, it is about $11 a spray can
i use it for the real tough jobs & PB for the rest

Thought I would add this here as this is one of the threads I came across in my searches.

I battled with my 2011 driver's side for a day, including a broken slide hammer. Spent another half day searching the internet to no avail. I ended up circumferentially cutting the CV axle exactly at the point where the internal groove for the retaining clip is located. Then I popped the clip off the intermediate shaft and slid off the remaining piece. Purchased a new clip and slid the new axle on.
