CJ5 Body (tub) differences, '71 to '72

What are the differences in the CJ5 body between '71 and '72 model years? I know the fenders are stretched for 72, but is the tub the same? Do the pedals change from bottom to top hinge or something?

Mainly the difference are in the floor and firewall. You already guessed the pedal difference. Along with the pedals going from below the floor to swinging pedals the heater switched sides. On a '72 it's behind the glovebox. Both have the rear gastank and the same windshield frame, so I can't think of any other differences.
