    13mm for my Overland, but my 1/2" box wrench works no problem since it's so close.

    Thanks all--I ended up using a 1/2", but it wasn't a perfect fit which leads me to believe it's a metric size. I don't remember which one, my correct wrench is marked for easy identification!

    It's about 3 turns on the thumbwheel of a crescent wrench.

    I don't use the drain plug anymore, I have the Fram SureDrain. Takes longer to drain but absolutely no mess to clean up.
    I probably hate you.
