fuel pump question

here is another jeep newbee question.

Where is the fuel pump? and how hard is it to change?

i believe my fuel pump is bad, 87 yj 2.5 4cyl. every morning the jeep is very hard to start. it acts as if it was out of gas. but after pumping the gas pedal and cranking for what seems to be for ever it will start, and any time it is shut off for more than a couple hours it is the same proceedure to start it.

i just done a tune up, (plugs, wires, cap, rotor and air and fuel filter)

and since i am not much of a mechanic i dont seem to be able to locate the fuel pump and not sure if i should tackle this job or hire it done.

what do you guys think?

1987 jeep wrangler YJ
2.5 4 banger

2.5 rough country lift
31x10.5 tires on stock wheels
