My '96 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited is in need of new shocks. I purchased it used and don't know if it has the "up country" option described in the owners manual. How can I find out?

If you have tow hooks and skid plates you have up country. Either way, buy the shocks that say they are for the up country package. They'll be just a tad longer.

Around here the Up-Country shocks are much more than the regular ZJ shocks. If you want that longer travel might as well go with the Rancho RS5000's. Much better shock.
