How do I know what brake calipers I have?

I have an 02 WJ. From what I've read, they changes from Teeves to Akebono calipers in mid '02. So how could I identify mine?

I'm only asking because I need to get some front brake pads, anyone have suggestions on those too?

if it was built before may of 02 then it has the teves caliper. i think you can find the build date on the driver door/door sill. or decode the vin maybe.

I checked the vin and nothing. I'll check the build tag right now.

EDIT:
It said the mfg date was 08-01. So I'm assuming the Teeves?

You can also tell by looking at the "retaining clip" not sure of the technical term... The Teves has a skinny wire clip and the Akebono has a flat clip...I bought my pads at Napa and turned the rotors.
