slide hammer not removing stuck wheel bearing hub 05 silverado

Got a case of corrosion in between wheel bearing hub and hub assembly. Using the slide hammer cannot get it pulled off. If I have to use map gas, which I do have, is the best place on the back of the outer wheel bearing on the back side of the hub or front hub assembly? Do not normally remove these from trucks just passenger vans so this is a little fustrating that it is not moving.

So far no go even with a torch. Looks like the entire knuckle assembly will have to be removed and put into a 10 ton press.
