Still can't get the last bolt holding the axle to the tranny. Got an air compressor with an impact wrench and ratchet wrench. Put the two bolts in on either side of the problem bolt and still couldn't get the last one loose.

Wife is not happy as lack of progress means a long cold winter without being able to park in the garage.

have you gotten this fixed yet? you're talking about the small bolts that go through the CV at the transmission right? not the big one at the end of the axle at the steering knuckle.
the easiest way to remove it is drill the head off, I've got 30 or so axle bolts to spare if you need some.
If you're talking about the big axle bolt, the best is to soak it daily for 3 or 4 days with PB blaster, and then use an impact gun.
I'm talking about the small (8mm) bolts that go through the CV at the transmission. I may need replacements. I'm new at this. You mention drilling the head off. Do you mean cut the head off and then drill the remainder out?
