    Welcome to Jeeps.net.
    I have never dealt with the intermediate steering shaft so I don't have any tips or tricks.
    Hopefully someone will pop in with some help for you.

    Its the intermediate axle shaft. I got the outside ones out, but the intermediate one is stuck for some reason.

    I must have missed your Jeep info earlier, my apologies.

    Passenger side front axle shaft? I am not all that familiar with the early Dana 30 axles but it has a Central Axle Disconnect that you may have to remove from the axle tube in order to remove the shaft. It contains a shift fork that slides a collar to connect the two piece shaft. Other than that I can't think of anything that would be holding the axle in.

    If you haven't already done so you have to remove this cap and shift fork off of the rear of the front axle in order for the passenger side inner axle to be removed.
