power steering

Here is my situation; I have a 87 yj with manual steering. it handle ok on the road but in parking lot and some off road situations it's a bit much some times. I am not the most mechanically inclined individual but if a spend enough time wrenching it I can usually figure it out. How difficult would it be to switch to a power steering set up from my manual and were would I want to start. Any help would be appreciated.

jeep info:
Stock frond end with 31's
Stock engine

Shouldnt be too bad...all you need is the p/s pump and bracket assembly, steering box with pitman arm, hoses, and a new engine drive belt. Basically just take off one part at a time and replace with the new stuff, hook up the lines, bleed the air out, and drive
