What size snap ring plier for front 4x4 hub?

Am attempting to remove front hubs on my 05 f250.
The snap ring pliers I have are too small. Purchased
an internal/external pair at Sears and they're too wide
to fit inside the hub. Can anyone let me know what
size internal snap ring pliers are required to remove
the hub snap ring or better yet what make/model of
snap ring pliers they successfully used to remove the
snap ring. Any info appreciated.

tks,
George

Thanks for the reply 06silvercrew. They do appear to be quite stout. I'll look at the
Snap on line and see what they offer. Thanks again.
