What tools for service?

What do I need for the following items? I'm more interested in the type of tool and if its metric or standard, than what exact size things are. If you know the size, that would be great too!

This is what I need to know to buy some tools:

Brake caliper body removal - Normally a hex socket

AX-15 Fill Plug

NP 203 Fill Plug

Dana 35 Rear End Fill Plug - This has a cover, do I just pry this off? How do I get it off?

Dana 30 Front End Fill Plug

Thanks!

Front brake caliper is 13mm or 1/2 in either will work. You will also need a 6 in C clamp to push the piston back into the caliper. I use a crescent wrench for the drain plug on the AX-15 and refill it through the shifter. The transfer case fill plug is hard to say there were at least 3 different ones used and are you sure its a 203 and not a 231? Dana 35 fill plug you just pry out with a flat screw driver. Dana 30 I use a crescent wrench on my 95 and a 3/8 drive ratchet with a 3 inch extension on it for my 79. My advice is go to sears or somewhere and buy descent set of tools. If you buy them individually it will cast a lot more in the long run.
