Default Where is the starter relay '05

I stopped at parking lot and turned off my truck and in the time it took me to eat a burger, i tried to start it. i turn the key and dash lights come on radio and one single strong CLICK and nothing. the battery is fine, I tried to jump it at the solenoid and the most reaction i got was a couple clicks and nothing. So from what I have found it is most likely the Starter relay. at least i think. But ther is only one problem. I cannot find it. My tech book doesnt have anything more then simple instructions to replace it which is pointless because i cant find it. Any help would be great, am I wrong? If possible draw diagram or show pic? It isnt near the battery like in these older models. Is it in the enginecompartment fuse box? Is it oneof those gray relays? If it is in there how do i know what is what? It doesnt tell me anywhere. Is there anything else i can do at least to get it startedthis one time to savemoney on a tow truck?

look in your owners manual. if you don't have one go to fleetford.com >maintenance for some reason I think it is #12( this is a guess) in your distribution box ignition/starter relay. check fuses. ignition switch, cpp/nss, theft/ remote system. check power and connections at starter/solenoid
