if a ZJ this is a pretty easy repair [note some years the exhaust head-pipe needs to be unbolted from
the exhaust manifold as the pan won't quite clear the pipe due to the oil pickup inside the pan.
what you will need.
1 a flat hard floor [concrete] garage or driveway
2 heavy duty jack stands [2 req. min.]
3. an oil drain bucket and a long narrow slop pan [to catch oil drips while the pan is off.
4. cotter pin pliers and a medium hammer to remove steering link at pittman arm [hammer on pittman arm not joint, leave nut on a few threads to prevent damage from a missed blow]
5. sufficient hand tools and sockets to preform job [a complete 1/4" drive set. and a couple of paint scrapers to separate unbolted oil pan from block [this always sticks] and to clean mating surfaces
6. several cans of carb. clean spray. all gasket surfaces must be dry of oil and chemically clean
before re assembly.
7. a stainless steel wire "toothbrush" to assist in cleanup.
8. a tube of bright touch up paint [mark sides of block where special pan bolts go for such items an A/T line brackets and oxygen sensor wire bracket etc.
9. oil and oil filter [6-qts] plus perhaps 1/4 qt. more for proper [empty pan] oil level after completion
1. jack body until front wheel is off ground, do one side at a time and install jack stands [the front suspension MUST be at full droop. remove front wheels for extra ambient light.
BE CAREFUL JACKING AND BLOCKING AS YOU CAN BE DEAD ONLY ONCE. USE ONLY SAFETY JACK STANDS OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY.
2. drain oil and remove filter.
3 . remove cotter pin and loosen nut at pittman arm hit side of pittman arm with hammer a winning crack to unseat the taper then remove nut and link and let fall

Customarily all you need is the gasket, Use original sense, if the skin on the pan the place the gasket sits appears too broken, and now not flat, Get a brand new pan. Pans are low-priced, that you would be able to get one at a junk yard for as a rule 20 bucks. Or online. THe pan for my Mopar 318 used to be eighty$ chromed.
