wiring in a new ignition switch....

1987 Wrangler, 4.0 5 speed

Well after spending $1300 to get my new tranny in I took my Jeep to the mall only to have some punk destroy my ingition lock and tear up my steering column real good in a thankfully failed attempt at stealing my Jeep...

The lock is damaged beyond repair, and I can't get it to slide out of the column. They did a pretty good job ripping up the insides of the column too. The steering wheel lock mechanism is destroyed as well....

Question is.... What would I have to do to install my own ignition lock. I found a switch/lock, and it is fairly labeled as to what wire goes where, but I don't know the color of the wires that I need. I can see where the wires come off the ignition switch, so I can get to them to wire it to the new switch/lock. I wouldn't even be opposed to setting up a system of switches, and maybe a push button toggle for ignition. That would be pretty cool. =)

Any help will be greatly appreciated!
