Default TJ fan clutch...argh

Although I had it off in like July, I can't remember if it's right or left hand threads (FSM says right hand, but it ain't budging). Using a crescent wrench, I tried to let the fan belt hold it (nope, although worked once before I think), then took off the belt (per FSM) which obviously freely spins, then tried a belt wrench thingy to hold the pully, but no luck.
Gotta get this damn thing off to get off the water pump, to get off the timing cover to replace the timing chain and gears while the oil pan is off from replacing the oil pump and rear main seal...

Cliff notes: I hate my Jeep...somebody help me
me - -my Jeep

EDIT: got it.

Usually does the trick. You might want to try Rocky's idea though.

Anything big like that, thats REALLY torqued on, you usually need an impact to break it loose.

4 foot cheater bar and 3 smacks with a 7 lb sledge usually does it. Great for FWD axle nuts.
