Default 2006 F150 5.4 V8 Coolant Temp Sensor Location

Does anyone know where the coolant temp sensor unit is located on a 2006 F150 5.4L FX4? I have looked all over the engine and see several sensors but haven't been able to determine which is the temp unit. Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated.

Default Replacing the CHT sensor

Is it easier to remove the intake to get to the sensor or can you get to it from underneath the truck from the back of the engine?

Remove the intake. If your able to / have small enough hands, you and fit a 3/4 inch wrench under the intakes tunnel and get it out. I changed mine before w/o removing the intake. You won't be able to get to it from under the truck.
