Default jk Rubi front shaft issues

so I recently had the lower ball joint fail while in 4wd and in the throttle, which cause a chain reaction of problems, tore the upper ball joint out and shattered the u-joint and broke the stub shaft. My issue is that now the inner shaft on the drivers side wont come out of the axle, anyone ever have this issue? any help, info or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

BTW we have tried a 3' pry bar and a slide hammer..

Probably twisted the splines a bit where they go into carrier. Usually the slide hammer will get it out.
