Coolant leak. 2012 KK 70th 4wd

Well I just finished a expended project and my jeep has been parked from 8/19 to today.

My wife has been starting it up every month and letting it run for an hour.
Just came home to notice a coolant leak from the front of the engine.

I am suspecting a leaky water pump.

I do not know 100% yet.

But how much of a PITA is it to replace.

Real easy. Right up front. Only added complication is if you have an added mechanical fan attached to the pump itself.

I'm no expert but having a vehicle run for an hour doesn't sound like a good idea to me. No air flow for the radiator or engine. I could see letting it run for a few if you had a dead battery... Again... I'm no expert.
