Here are the disassembly dash photos that I took yesterday when wiring. I have a 77 CJ5 with a V8. I pretty much have it done, didnt take any pics of the engine compartment. My harness that I bought (Kwik wire) is labeled really well and the TSM I have is ok (wiring diagram didnt help much but the explanations in the text did). If you have any other questions I may be able to field them. I am not an expert by any means but I am basically working on the same project.
here are the links to the pics behind the dash:

For my '70, but very similar to yours in many respects. If you've got common sense, you should be able to make this work. Just keep in mind they switched to AMC motors in '72. What ignition system and carb do you have?
