Cant get pitman arm off

Installing a lift kit on 2000 f350. I am trying to remove the stock pitman arm with no luck. I have soaked it in pb blaster, heated it and tried a pitman arm remover and a 5 ton 2 jaw puller. No luck. Any suggestions?

I had the same issues swapping mine out.

While putting pressure on the arm/shaft with the puller, smack it a few times with a big hammer on the side of the pitman arm.

mine popped right off after about an hour of ****ing with it.

I had the same problem when i replaced my steering box. I couldn't get a puller to work cause they kept sliding off. I took a 3 lb hammer to it hard for about an hour and a half and it just popped off.

I finally got it. Lots of pressure on the puller, heat it up a bit and beat the living hell out of it. About 20 hits and it came off. Pain in the butt
