The SAE is 2-1/8", which is a snug 54mm. This works fine but some claim they are not deep enough, never seemed true for me on my IFS truck, though.

Marlin sells a very nice socket, heavy wall and sized right (doesn't slip), which is what I mostly use. He's also out of stock and still not cheap ($25).

"Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security. " --Albert Einstein
