The oil switch is located on the passenger side of the truck in the back of the engine. Look for the transmission dipstick, then feel for it between the transmission dipstick and the engine block. It is hidden pretty well, but a socket wrench will fit to take it off. The new part uses a 1-1/16 socket, the old part for some reason was smaller, I think 13/16 inch. Hope that helps.

If your engine is any thing like my 4.0L SOHC the oil pressure switch is located opposite the oil filter location on the driver side front of engine block right under the front of the exaust manifold. Look through the drivers side wheel well; it will have a single green wire with a white stripe on it. Hope this helps. God bless
