Get yourself a set of Pittsburgh 3/4" dr sockets at Harbor Freight.

I've had them for years and never had a problem and I bought them to beat on.

I use large adjustable wrenches on light poles

I have an 18" and 24"....they will handle most 30' and 40' poles.

I use 30" cheater pipes with them for leverage

Never any issues with clearance with the jaws?

i am not sure the exact opening but I personally turned the nuts on 1-1/2" galvanized j-bolt, I not sure the exact dimension of of the nuts but they were over 2"

I see alot of guys use pipe wrenches....I think they scuff the galvanization off the nuts and it is not good practice for a new install. I have no problem with using a pipe wrench when removing old bolts tho.
