I use an old, well worn (no longer stays parallel) monkey wrench, sometimes with a pipe cheater. I also use plenty of penetrating oil, and have the receiver tightly clamped in a large well-padded, well-anchored vise.

So far - and I'm just about done doing such things - have never broken, or damaged, anything. Have also never been unable to get the job done. I've been fortunate, as there are plenty of ways have "problems" if you are not careful.
