what size socket needed for transfer case drain/fill plugs?

Hey heard tapping noise backing out of driveway coming from back of jeep. I thought the universal joints might be going. I'm gonna replace just in case. thought I might go ahead and replace my transfer case fluid. The PO didn't do much preventive maintenance.
I can't get the fill plug loose from the transfer case. (got the drain plug out with big adjustable wrench) What size socket do I need to buy?
Help I'm in the middle of the project now.

Thanks
Rich

30MM is the ticket. Took YJ to autoparts place and tried them until I found a winner.

Thanks
