SerializeJSON turning 08690 into 8690.. Help!

I am using jquery autosuggest and it uses JSON to give the zipcodes as i type.   The zipcodes are right in the database

as 00620, 08690, etc,etc.  But the JSON is dropping the leading zeros.   How can I make it stay as a full string and not make it a number?

Sounds like it's converting it to a numeric type (which doesn't have leading zeros). Last I checked, the only hack was to add a leading or trailing space to the value. That tricks json into thinking the value is a string, not a number.

"(space)00620"  OR
