79 CJ7 A/C Install? How Hard is it?

I am getting ready to purchase a 79 CJ7, and want to install A/C in it. How hard would the install be and what all would I need to do it? Would an A/C system from a YJ work? My dad back in the day had an old CJ7, but I have only had Yj's, TJ's, and a JK. So this is my first CJ adventure.

Some cjs had air. It was a hang on unit that was below the dash. They come on eBay from time to time.

You need the compressor, condenser, hang on unit. That's the short list.

'76 CJ7
It's red.
'99 TJ
It's red too.
