Most parts stores offer at least three different grades of brake pad. The difference between them is generally related to their ability to dissipate heat and resist wear-out. For general routine driving, usually the middle grade is a good bet. If you are low on cash, you can buy the cheaper version but expect to change them much sooner. All pads must meet DOT specifications for minimum performance so all will work. Part # is determined by manufacturer and the parts store has a reference to match their products to your car.
For off-road use, you may want to opt for something different and more expensive like a ceramic composite pad but they are expensive and aren't really necessary for around town or "normal driving". If you can, always replace rotors with pads as the modern rotors are in no way as durable as those on older cars. Cutting them (re-surfacing) most times results in loss of performance unless it's an extremely light cut and only on the first service. Always change at least part of your brake fluid (either by bleeding or removing fluid from the master reservoir with a siphon or turkey baster) and make sure that all slides on the calipers are free and there is no rust inside the caliper piston boots.I likely gave you far more info than you need but now you know what you need to!!!
good luck!!

Any place that sells them will tell you - please - take the vin number down - year make and model and go to Advance Auto or some other retail shop and simply ask them - there is no charge and their books are best used with the vin number - while your doing this - call the local Jeep dealer and ask about any recalls on your vehicle - it can save you thousands of dollars.
