Default Pic request - PCV valve on 4.0 OHV

I have 145,000 miles and have never changed the PCV valve. I don't know where it is, other than "it's near the firewall". Could a 4.0 OHV owner tell me where it is and how to remove it? A pic would be even better.

I also need to check the elbow hose on it for a vacuum leak since my AC only blows through the defrost vents, so it's time to get on this.

Thanks for any help

The PCV valve connects the crankcase to the intake manifold



Will have hoses going to it



with a plastic connector

I still can't find it. Does the hose conceal the entire valve or should I be able to see part of the valve?
