To the left of the strut tower bar their should be a bunch of wires dont pull, but jiggle a few to see if any are loose. if one is then their is your IAT. I found mine the exact same way. looking between the intake manifold and the right strut tower bar.

Where is the intake air temperature located on a 1997 Nissan 4X4 hardbody pickup 4 cylinder?

The intake air temp sensor is a common issues on the '97, but I don't really know why. Look underneath the air intake box where the filter is housed. You'll see a harness, and a bulb-like device going inside the air box, that is the sensor. You can get one from your local auto parts store. I hope that you have found this information useful.
