Just curious what side is your bearing bad on?

I'm on the passenger

I think your going to need to cut the whole hub and axle off from the back of the flange.... there is no room to get a grinder of any sort to get the nut off.
Once you do that you should be able to pound the axle out of the rest of it and then unbolt the bearing.

There is the reason I coat the area in antisieze, splines/nut/threads and lug nuts and rotor/hub face :P

A Dremel with a small wire brush to clean the threads up as much as possible was going to be my starting point and work my way up from there.

Unfortunately I don't have torches at my disposal but I will be using some MAPP gas to give some heat before attempting to remove the nut.

Princess Auto apparently has the yellow bottles on sale right now. A coworker suggested that to get a bunch of heat on what's left of the nut. I'm likely going to angle-grinder through the hub lip and into the nut as a starting point. Then air chisel to split the nut. It's hard to see where the nut ends and the CV shaft begins - stay tuned.

Nothing makes you cringe more than crawling under the car to fix something and finding shit paper stuck underneath the car....

I will off road to not drive through some "puddles" I come across here!!

I used a 12 ton Harbor Freight hydraulic gear puller last time I had a stuck hub like that. Don't bother with the 8 ton...It made pretty quick work out of a difficult looking situation. I also have used a hole saw with the center drill replaced with a dowel that fit in a newly drilled center hole to grind the nut to smithereens. Worked like magic on rear suspension bushings as well.
