AM / FM Stereo radio conversation to AM /FM / CB radio / wiring questions

Ok, I have looked closer and the only plug that is different (other than the CB antenna and Mike cord appears to be the power cord.

I have reviewed the wiring diagram for the 1984 CJ-7 and the only radios on the diagram are the AM / FM, and the AM / FM / Cassette radios.

Was the CB radio offered in 84?

The power cord for the AM / FM / CB has three wires, Brown with a fuse, orange, and black. The plug that plugs into the power wires only has two wires out, the orange and brown. Iím thinking the brown is power as it has a fuse and the orange might be dash lights.

The radio I have is complete with the matching transformer for the AM / FM / CB antennas, and also the mike.

So to install I need to know;

1) The power wires (orange dash lights, brown to power????)

2) Original location of the mike jack on the dash.

Pictures of the radio in the dash with the mike jack location would be great.

Wiring diagram for the AM / FM / CB wiring would be great.

Advice would be great
