Where are the spark plugs?

The vulcan is running like crap so I figured I'd change the sparkplugs. Looking quickly I couldn't seem to find them. Where are they??

follow your spark plug wires.....down to the spark plugs.

If you can't find the spark plug wires, you shouldn't be working on a truck.
