Is there a way to test a fuel pump?

Is there any way to test if a fuel pump is bad/weak without taking it to a shop? 1996 Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0

Go to one of the big box parts stores and they loan out fuel pressure gauges.

Sorry I usually go in steps. Like power to pump. Filter. Then test pressure. Was trained by my dad he has had machine shops in Florida for years. Lolhe can put his hand on a vehicle and tell you what's wrong. Lol no computers. Wish I could do that
