Anyone know what size it is? I know it is not standard or metric, and i know its splined. What i'm not sure is if it is a torx or a special socket. I have a bent axle and need to remove to install a new one.

What axle?

I'm not very sure what part you're writing about either.

After you remove the Diff cover plate and your looking at the ring gear. In order to remove the axle shaft you have to unlock the pinion shaft pin. There is a lock bolt that locks in the pin. After you remove the lock bolt you remove the pin and horseshoe clip you then can remove the axle shaft. I'm talking rear axle in case you don't understand. I just need to know if its a special socket or is it a tool that one could by from Snap On?

That's the crosspin and the crosspin retaining bolt.

You still didn't answer what axle. You said rear axle...but what model??? The D35 is a 12-point 1/4" IIRC. Or if I'm mistaken, it may be something metric around the same size. I think the Ford Explorer 8.8 I had in my 99 TJ was 12-point 1/4" also.
