I can tell you for a fact that it's a 1 5/16" (1 and 5/16 inches).
I had to yank my pitman arm off earlier this week and that's the size of socket I had to get.
Becareful if you go buy a socket that large as most of the ones I've seen are 3/4" drive.

I just pulled my pitman off 2 days ago. On my CJ-7 (83) it was a 34mm socket. I got it at autozone for $14 and it is a 1/2 drive. Don't know if it is the same for YJ...

:O Those ba$tards..lol.
I went to Autozone looking for a 1 5/16" socket in 1/2" drive..and they didn't have ANY. So I had to go to Napa and snagged one for $25. It was a 3/4" drive socket.

i dont know if it is different on CJs/ YJs but i went to autozone and got the 34mm axle socket. It has worked for me twice now. I think the torgue spec is 150 but someone needs to double check that for me.- Tim

update.. went to autozone and they had a 34mm impact available as a loaner for $15 deposit.. 1/2 inch drive.. ten minutes with the pb blaster, and a few raps with the hammer and it was done. took less than fifteen minutes from start to finish for removal, and to get the new one on... torque is 190 lbs for the new one... thanks guys
