Dana 30 axle nut size?

I'm looking for the size of the GIANT nut that holds the hub assembly onto the Dana 30 front axle? I'm changing out the stock hubs for some Warns and I need to remove that nut. So I need a new socket. Which size???
Thanks

I bought an entire 3/4" socket set from Harbor Freight that had the correct size socket for like $40.
