Default airbag control module

Where can I find the airbag control module in my 98 ranger 4.0 v6 automatic? I looked under the cupholders, this is where I found a spare one off of a 99 ranger at pick n pull. I also heard it a few times on the forums. I already pulled off the cup holder and the ashtray/psngr airbag switch assembly with no luck. Am I in the wrong area? If any can tell or show me. That would be much appreciated. Thank you

Thank you sir. I will take a look. Does the kick plate actuallyneed to be removed or can it be accessed through the glove box area?
