Brake Pads

Trying to do a brake job on my 03 GC Laredo... Do all 2003s have Akebono calipers?

"At the very end of the 2002 model year, Jeep changed to "fully-closed" style calipers designed by Akebono. All Grand Cherokee models produced on or after May 11th, 2002 feature the new calipers. International models built on or after August 16th, 2002 also feature the new calipers."
