No, they were not standard for all V8s.

Sticker may not be there, My wife's ZJ has the UpCountry package but there is no sticker so either it didn't come with a sticker or the owner that bought it brand new pulled it off

Huh. Well then I guess the only other way to tell would be to request a build sheet from chrysler

Usually if you see the factory skidplate package or towhooks, its UC. Pretty sure all Orvis had UC. Look at the shocks. The early ones had blue shocks. Those shocks rule too. If you could find a set that isn't leaking that would be good.

I always thought skids and hooks could've been ordered separate from up country? But if you got UC obviously you got hooks and skids

Up country should be around 19" center hub to fender. They also had larger tires I think. Not that that would help at a JY. You can get all the hooks and skids for a regular ZJ if you wanted but it's more likely that with hitch, hooks, and skids the it's the up country.

All that will probably be stripped though so good luck.

Skid package is separate from UC but usually if it had one, it had the other. Was just a common thing to put together. Which makes sense.

If it had upcountry springs it had the skids, but not the other way around.

The only thing that was guaranteed to have UC springs is the orvis.

Up country wasn't offered for the 5.9.
