Get selected value of RadioButtonList using JQuery

The function below works fine.  But I was curious as to how to use 'this' with the input:checked selector to find the value of the checked button.  I've tried different formats but haven't hit on the right one. i.e. $('this input:checked').val()

$(function () {
    $('#<%=rblExistingDamage.ClientID%>').click(function () {
        if ($('#<%=rblExistingDamage.ClientID%> input:checked').val() == 'true') {
             $('#<%=rowExistingDamage.ClientID%>').show();
         } else {
            $('#<%=rowExistingDamage.ClientID%>').hide();
        }
    });
});
