Default New to the ranger forum. need advice on the thermostat

Hi everyone, i need to replace the thermostat in my ranger but dont really knowhere to even begin. i read online to follow the upper radiator hose to the thermostat housing but i looked there without disconnecting the house and dont see anything that looks like thermostat housing. ranger xlt 2.5l automatic. Would i be able to see it if i disconnected the upper radiator hose? or is it just buried under more things that i would have to remove? If anyone has this year and model truck and knows where to look and what to do i would really appreciate some help. thanks
