Newbie with stuck cv on 2005 JGC

Hey everyone....another Jeep lover here..I'm on my fourth one and I buy fix and sell Jeeps. Which brings me to my problem..
Got a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo...front drivers CV unit WILL NOT BUDGE....we tried every pry method possible along with making up an extra heavy duty slide hammer with 6lb slammer on a four ft rod....with multiple full force hits it never moved...the passenger side popped out first time no issues.
I am about to make up a custom fork similar to a ball joint separator to place between housing and cv joint and forcing it in with a large hammer in order to make it pop out.
Has anyone tried this method? I know I have to be careful not to damage the differential housing ...but short of removing the entire diff and beating it some more in a large vise.....I'm open to learn from somebody else's experiences with the same issue.
