Installing a heater in an 81 CJ5

Admitted Jeep n00b here and this is my first post. I purchased an 81 CJ5 with no heater in it. Anyone have a thread, link or video as to how to install one? Recommendations for a brand vs OEM? I read a little about Mojave heaters but couldn't find a ton of info. Thanks in advance!

If you're thinking about installing an electric heater in your Jeep, just stop now. Unless you're towing a sizeable generator behind the Jeep to power said heater, you simply aren't going to generate enough power to run an electric heater that comes close to the same output as a conventional automotive unit that uses the engine's waste heat.

You can get stand alone units like the Mojave that hook up to coolant lines from the motor.
