Hello, it's not "easy" but, it's doable.
You'll need to follow the instructions and don't take shortcuts. ask for help if you need it.
Use this link to get an idea of what is involved. Ignore the "remove transmission" part. It can be done without removing the tranny. If you decide to do this buy a service manual to help you. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

SOURCE: How to replace rear freeze plug
You will have to pull the trans to get to the freeze plug. Take a punch and knock one side of the plug in then pull the rest of the plug out with plires.Take sand paper and clean the hole, Apply permatex sealant around the new plug, and drive it in with a socket that will just fit inside the freeze plug. You should replace them both while you are there. Good Luck

Actually yeah you are in luck that combination only requires dropping the oil pan. The seal is actually fairly easy to do it yourself, if your inclined. Parts about $20.00 and it's book rate is 5 hours. around here shops charge around $85/hour. About $500.00 out the door or under $50.00 if you want to get greasy. Here's a good picture guided step by step on a Jeep CJ with a 4.0 liter, yours is pretty much the same:

I have done many the transmisson has to come out to replace it but your price is way out of line, should not be more than $400.00 give me a zip and I can get you a certified shop that can do it for less with a warrenty.

Yes, either pull the trans or pull the engine. No way to get in there with out having one of the two out!
FYI it's very rare for a rear main on that engine to leak, Most all of the time it's the oil pan gasket or coming from higher up like a valve cover or the intake gaskets!
