Engine:
New cap, rotor, plugs, points, and condenser. Be sure to recheck the timing when your done setting the dwell. A great upgrade is an HEI ignition from a 76 Apollo with the 231 ODDFIRE. Speaking of the oddfire, do some research on the engine, as it has some ignition quirks you should be aware of.
Your CJ has an alternator upgrade. That is a good thing, however, I would dump the cheesy air cleaner for a larger, fully enclosed unit.
Most of this can be done with the body removed for easier access, however, I would solve any steering issues before pulling it.

It is a 12 volt system. Your currently running a delco internally regulated alternator, which isn't stock. It is however, a cheaper, and in my opinion, better replacement.
Back to your timing, Insure your rotor is under the #1 tower on the cap. While it will run if it isn't, it won't be right and you can have some frustrating times trying to sort out weak cylinders and misses.

What a great find! I really like those oddfire engines in a jeep.

Since it has been sitting a while, I would change the oil and filter. Remove the plugs and put a little oil in each cylinder. Pull the distributor and spin the oil pump with a drill motor. Note that you get oil pressure. You will also feel it in the speed of the drill motor.

Rotate the engine by hand CW about a quarter turn, and then run the drill some more.

Repeat the procedure until you have rotated the engine completely for a couple of turns.

Do all this just before you try to start the engine for the first time, and you won't cause any damage due to dry starts.

The only downside to this is that if you are not proficient at setting timing, it can be harder to start up the first time since the distributor was removed.

A way arount this is to set the engine on TDC compression before you remove the distributor, and scribe a line where the housing is oriented, and note the rotor position.

Now when you put it back, it will be close enough to start if you reset to TDC after you are done.

I sprayed slick50 down in the cylinders of my 304 before I started it. Plus I worked the crankshaft bolt back and for slowly untill I had nice smooth revolutions, before I cranked it. That was after it sat for about 6 years.

A quick Google search came up with .016" for a '69 225 V6 with the Prestolite distributor.

I didn't find anything specific for a '67, but I suspect it's the same.
