If you have access there are several options.
You can cut the nut.
You can put vice grips on it.
If it's stripped bad enough (which it will be after the vice grips) sometimes you can puta smaller wrench on it, with a hammer.

In any case start by applying heat. That will help break the threads loose, some penetrating oil is a good thing too.

Man I really appreciate the offer. That is very kind of you. I was able to remove it. I went to OReilly and bought the power grip

This thing was on tight I broke the back end of the bit but I managed to loosen it. Thanks guys for all of your help. This is a great group of guys on MH!
