front differential - fill plug size

What size square drive is the check/fill plug on a 96 xj ? It looks about 5/16 or so but I don't want to go buy a full set (limited funds). I believe it's the dana 30 if that makes a diff.
Thanks

I've always used a 3/8ths extension.

That was it ,there was a little scale in the hole. Now I'll let the ole pb do it's job, that plug is rusted in. Thanks to all that responded. This xj (96 country with 80k all stock) is new to my son and needs a few hopefully minor repairs. I'm sure I will be back asking questions.
