How to remove bathroom faucet

Well I got the supply line off (previous post).
No place carries an exact replacement supply line.
Kohler sent out a new faucet.

What do I have to do to get this old faucet off. Tried turning the round part from underneath, with no luck. Any suggestions? 3rd picture is the top side with the handle off.

Thanks, I'll give it a try tomorrow with a bigger wrench.

One last question. I got the large locknut to come off on the cold side. I'm going to have to try harder for the hot side.

Question - will the faucet just lift up off the granite, or maybe the bottom just slide out. Trying to help out my sister-in-law and save her some money. If I can't get it loose and replace the faucet today, I'll have her call a plumber.

Thanks again.

Them two big nuts hold the hot and cold valves in place as well as hold the faucet down.
Once those two nuts are removed.... the valves should fall out below.
The drain pull rod is disconnected from below and will pull up and out.

Since you are removing the valve for replacement you could use channel lock pliers on the nut if a wrench won't grab the flats. The channel locks will ruin the outer threads.
