no puller needed, just a big hammer ;D and maybe a piece of wood between the stabilizer and hammer.

Maybe let it sit over night with some wd40 or pb blaster.
Then put a piece of wood between the bolt and the hammer.

Or simply leave the nut, on the bolt, to protect it, and hit it with large hammer.

Believe me, I've hit mine(on XJ) pretty hard before and didn't bend it a bit... but that large boulder that I landed on did

I just replaced the one on my TJ. I had to get fairly violent with it to get it to pop loose. Even just a little heat will help.
