Right Hub & Bearing Frozen Together

Went to replace the ball joints, wheel bearings and tie rods. Did the driver's side first. Not too bad took longer then expected but no big deal.
The passenger side though is another story. The hub assembly would not come off normally so I finally turned the cap CCW and released it in pieces. The cap, spring and white plastic pieces came out but the gears seem to be frozen onto the axle shaft.
Any ideas on how to proceed from here so I can get to the retaining clip to separate the bearing assembly from the axle shaft?

2000 4x4 156,000 miles 4.0 manual

Thanks
Chris Sr.

Didn't think about that earlier and too dark now. Will take a couple in the morning.

Is the black gear housing still on it?

The black housing was still on until I lost patience and snapped it off. All gears still remain engaged and seized together.

Took pics but they are too big for this forum. Will try another way.
