Axle nut, reverse thread?

I've taken off the tire and the cover plate, but the axle nut is stuck and a friend said it could be reverse thread. Any immediate help would be appreicated. 97' CL

hit it with a big ass hammer with the nut on flush with the end of the axle. or use a deadblow. plastic hammer filled with sand. or a big ass rubber mallet.

1000lb 3/4 impact gun will do the trick.
