Default 2000 Dakota power steering pump replacement--what do I need?

I've got a 2000 Dakota thrasher with about 150K. Power steering pump pukes out a pint of fluid every few days, so I'm figuring the pump needs to be replacement. What tools, how much time am I looking at for R and R.

if i remember right, from when i replaced mine... You just need a pump. 1st or 2nd Gen Dakota will work. maybe grab a can of stop leak for power steering if you have any minor leaks when your done. should be fairly simple though. You will have to remove the inner fender well to get at the lines i believe. The total job took me about an hour.
