Power steering rack troubles

My dealership gave me an estimate of over $1K to fix my leaking rack on my 1996 Toyota T-100 pick up truck.



Is this something I might be able to fix myself? I have basic tools, and a garage. But will I need any specialized tools, or should I let Toyota fix it?

Specifically, it is a 1996 T-100 SR5 Xtra Cab, 2wd, P/S, A/C 5sp Manual tranny.
