I'm trying to remove the steering wheel from a 1984 LS P'up, No matter how hard I pull, It wont come off, Is there any tricks to getting this off?

I've always used a steering wheel puller.

It's cheaper to fix what you have than to buy someone else's problems.

Kendall Sootfart Jerry and Jerry Lemond Are not the same person. Jlemond is the go to Isuzu Parts and Knowledge guy. Though we are seniors and both good lookin. Jerry wears striped overalls and sootfart wears the solid blue. Sootfart Jerry

Have someone pull gently on steering wheel while you tap gently with rubber or plastic hammer all around the wheel. Done!

All the screws removed I hope?

On my 85 pup took a piece of 1/4" steel 4"x 6" and cut a 1/2 circle notch out of the long edge about 1 3/4" wide and deep. I put the 1/4' steel behind the wheel and used a large gear puller to pull on the steel plate. It sounded like a gun going off when it came off. I have taken other wheels off with out using a puller. The trooper wheels have taped holes so you can use a normal steering wheel puller.

Yeah, I got it off, It just took a bit more muscle then I thought it would.
