Default factory amp location?

i have a 96 ranger with the premium sound and i wanna bypass the factory amp cuz i put a jvc head unit in. right now i have it running through the factory amp too so the sound quality gets crappy at low volumes does anyone know where the factory amp is? im sure its in the extended cab somewhere but i dont wanna tear the whole truck apart if i dont have to. thanks, JON

You will have to take the metal panal off the back off and its easier if you take the seatbelt off the panal too

If you've got a pic of the panel clips (or whatever the heck they're called) I might have some.

so i havent gotten the panel off yet but i found a wire harness that claims you just pull the two plugs from the amp and plug into each end of the harness i purchased it but like i said have not gotten the panel off yet not much free time. the harness is from metra item number 70-5513 you can get it on ebay for like 7 bucks
