13 mm if I'm not mistaken.
YJ,XJ,TJ, ZJ all come out real easy.
1. remove wheel
2. remove caliper by pulling two bolts from back side
3. remove 3 12 point 13mm bolts from backside of knuckle
4. pull Shaft out with the hub assembly.
NOTE, pulling the hub can be a serious PITA if it hasn't been out before. I've worked on two in one day, One fell out after remove the hub bolts, the other had to be beat out with a slap hammer and took about 30 minutes of beating cussing catching my breath and cussing some more.
When you do get them out, clean up both the hub and the knuckle and anti sieze it before putting it back together. that way next time they will fall out.
