I don't think you're going to find detailed instructions, but if you've got mechanical experience it shouldn't be too hard, just time-consuming. Be careful and remember to watch carefully where everything goes as you take it apart.

Go over to Jeeps Unlimited, and PM a guy who goes by the sig of "Silver XJ". He has a write-up on how to R&R the evaporator on a 2000XJ, and almost all of that procedure applies to the heater core as well.
1992 XJ -- stock (RIP)
2000 XJ -- lots of basic mods. Sold to fellow forum member. I miss it.
2014 JK -- the project is just starting!

Basically you need to remove the steering wheel and column, center console, and the entire dash. The only special tool you will need is a steeringwheel puller, the rest are just hand tools. It took me about 4.5 hours to remove the unit and 3 hours to put everything together again. You will need 2 people to remove the dash, it's bulky. While the dash is out you may want to tighten all the screws down, I was able to get rid of all my dash rattles as an added bonus.
