There are a few different brands for pad but most of us are using Bendix 4WD pads which have a pretty good reputation.

MU 2.8
Front (Bendix) DB11116
Rear (Bendix) DB11161

MU 3.1
Front (Bendix) DB 1270 front
Rear (Bendix) DB1280 rear

Front Awaiting for a confirmed trooper owner to PM the correct Bendix part numbers

Additional info
88-92 jackaroo/trooper/bighorn has the same as 2.8 MU
I think you will find 92-96 jackaroo/trooper/bighorn on will have the same as the 3.1 MU
