Im just guessing because I havent seen it, but I would say a 3/8ths ratchet like most tranny plugs.

Correct! Any 3/8ths ratchet will do, the plugs are pipe thread (1/2" NPT I believe) and there is some form of sealant on them. just clean them and re-seal with thread compound; NOT TOO MUCH! Trans case is aluminium so don't go crazy tightening them. I would up using a plastic funnel with a flexible spout that I added a piece of 3/8" fuel hose to and snaked the hose down between the master cyl. and firewall, then between the exhaust and transmission case and finally into the fill hole! As long as it is downhill all the way it will fill. Also the owner's manual says 4.2 quarts, but I drained about 3.5 or 3.6.
