New Member looking for help

I have a 2008 Wrangler with the 3.8L engine. It was run low on oil and now has a knock. I removed the oil pan and one rod bearing, and half of one crank bearing. (See pictures below) I can't afford to replace the engine or even do a full rebuild. Just planning on replacing brearings and oil pump and taking my chances. My question is "How do you replace the oil pump" on this engine? I've searched the web but couldn't find anything. Any info would be apprectiated. Thanks
