Replacing Steering Gear Box Should I Do The Pump Also?

I have a 1991 4WD XJ SE with 245,000+ miles and my steering gear box is leaking. I am going to get a re-manufactured box from NAPA tomorrow and I am wondering if I should replace the steering pump and the hoses while I am at it. The pump is original and since everything will be apart & drained should I just go ahead and replace it too. Also is there anything I should be mindful of when I replace the steering box, I have a factory service manual to follow.

Thanks for any help!

It's prety easy to do. Those reman boxes are junk tho idk how picky you are about steering but those usually have play in them.
