Default Roof Rack Pipe Diameter / Drain Plug Size

So I know these are totally unrelated, but I didn't feel like starting two threads.

I have a full set of tools back at home, but I'm at college and want to change my oil, but don't have the space/$$ for a full set of wrenches, so I was going to buy a single wrench (if I can find one) for the oil drain plug. Can anyone verify its size? (I know the torque is ~25 ft-lbs)

Also, I believe the roof rack tubing diameter is 2.25" Can anyone verify this? I want some roof clamps, but don't want to spend 50 bones for a fourtreks clamp so I was gonna try these SS puppies from mcmaster (<$8 each), but I want to make sure they'll fit.

Thanks!

yes, the roof rack is 2 1/4". as for the oil pan drain. no idea.

the drain for the diffs is a 10mm hex bolt, if that helps most things seem to be 10mm on the X . . .

14mm wrench on the drain plug. But you'll need a filter wrench, and I like to take off the radiator skid (10mm socket and phillips screw driver).
