Quickest and easiest way to get you the info is here - check this link:
This will walk you through the entire timing belt replacement procedure. Simply follow the disassembly until the water pump is off, and then reinstall everything in reverse order.

I own one of these. If it's a 3.5 engine, (original answer is incorrect, Dodge didn't make a 3.8 that year), you'll need to remove the entire front of the engine. (timing cover forward, because the waterpump is driven by the timing belt)
You'll have to remove the cross member over the radiator. Drain the radiator. Disconnect the transmission coolant lines, remove the radiator. Remove the serpentine belt, harmonic balancer (main pulley, and you'll need a puller, or you'll mess it up), remove the timing cover, remove the timing belt tensioner, remove the water pump. To put it back together, do it all in reverse with the following exceptions.
The timing belt tensioner must be closed in a vise, and held with a heavy pin.
Align both cam timing marks (they're on the top of the heads.)
Insert the tensioner and tighten it back up
It takes some patience, and a few tries, took me 5.
but that's all there is to it.

put silicone RTV sealant on the gasket surface and it will not leak.
comes in a small tube for 5 bucks.you can actually use it instead of gaskets for things like thermostats
