It's simple. Unbolt the two bolts holding the fan shroud on. Remove the four 10mm bolts holding the fan to the water pump, and it's off. Pull the fan and shroud out together.

4.0L engine

Don't see two bolts only a spring like thing on the front of the fan and the four bolts on the back of it holding the actual fan blades to the fan clutch.

Where are these two mysterious bolts you speak of?

The shroud is the black plastic piece that surrounds the fan. It'd designed to duct the air through the radiator, hence the name shroud. The bolts are at the very top of this shroud, going through it and into the radiator. The bolts you will want to remove to get the fan loose face away from you, towards the engine. They go through the fan clutch "driveshaft" into the water pump pulley.

Had to change a water pump on a friends 1994 3.0 a couple of years ago...

Remove the fan shroud. Forgot how many bolts...maybe 4?

Use a couple of wrenches (i remember using one adjustable) and work them against eachother to undo. Use the adj. wrench or something as a opposing fulcrum to the wrench you are using to remove the specific bolt (use the wrench with 2 bolts keep firm/steady)...may need a friend to hold while you crank the box wrench...don't remember how many bolts are on the fan shroud...take all 4 bolts out at the end...

Here is a cheap tool you can make yourself.

In this pic you can see what I did. I took a very cheap fence post bought at the local H-D for like $3 Smash one end flat and then grind out a radius to barely clear the fans hex shape. Then drill two holes for the pulley bolts to pass through. It's cheap and only takes 10-15 minutes to make. Works like a charm!
