Default TIP or trick to get stripped diff nut out?

Helping out a buddy fix his JRXS diff. He can no longer tighten or loosen then diff. The diff nut is stripped out at the threads and we cannot seem to get the diff screw free of the nut. At this point we are about to just hack off the outdrive on that side till we can get pliers on the bad nut. We tried pulling while twisting but no luck.

Is the only option to sacrifice that one outdrive?

take a drill the same size of either the screw head or the nut and drill it out.. If you drill the screw side, when ya done bang it throught with a small allen driver.. If you drill the nut side it will just come apart... Good luck!!! Better put the diff in a vise for safe mesures..
