What size is spindle-nut?

I got a new hub and Warn premium lock-out for Christmas. What size of socket do I need to unscrew the nut holding the hub onto the spindle? It's an '82 with the D30 axle.

If you're talking the hub (rotor assembly), it's a big sucker that I think you have to get from one of the magazines or rent. I got mine through 4 Wheel Hardware, I think it's like 2.5 inches. Not a normal Craftsman size!

Yea, that's the one I'm looking for. I may rent - but it would be nice to add to my trail tools. I just need to know what size to get so I don't have to try 3 or 4 that don't fit.
