AWM - International Suspension Group??

Just received my build sheet by e-mail. Everything looked good except the International Suspension Group thing. I thought it was called Up-Country. Is this correct??

Never heard of it called that. Just measure your suspension. Hub to the lip of the fender well. I believe a stock ZJ V8 rides at 18.25" or 18.5". You should be over that if you have upcountry.

My suspension shows "International Suspension Group" as well.

Anyone know what this means?

I did find on this mopar page that it is related to the "Up Country Suspension"

There was a discussion about this a while ago, I think they determined that the "International Suspension Group" is the Up Country package. Chrysler reuses those codes, so it's possible AWM was the Up Country code and at some point switched to the code for International Suspension Group.

Yeah, unfortunately the codes are reused and the description isn't stored with the vin, only the three letter codes.

A few people have gotten build sheets saying they had 18" wheels and that's obviously not something the ZJ shipped with.

Measure from the center of the wheel to the edge of the fender to determine current height, that will be the best indication.

And every ZJ build sheet I've ever seen lists "rack and pinion steering", which of course was never offered on the ZJ.
