Have you tried a breaker bar yet?

If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much damn space!

go buy some "liquid wrench" put some on the end of the bolt and let it soak in to the threads.
if that doesn't work, heat the nut with some kind of torch(don't melt the shit)and try taking it off while its hot. And if that still doesn't work, buy a "nut splitter" split the fucking thing and just buy a new nut!
