On the fuel rail. On the back left of the engine on the fuel rail there is a shrader test valve that the fuel pressure sender is attached to. Its a bit of a pain to get to on the 4.0. I've installed a couple different ones on my truck if you have any more questions.

Man I wish mine was on the front!

Mine is on the back passenger corner. I cant get to it with the blower on it, so I have yet to hook it up.

Summit Part

I'm 90% sure that's the fitting I used for mine. It screws on the shrader valve and adapts it to a 1/8th NPT which is the same as the fuel pressure sending unit that I have. Then I just got a double female connector from the hardware store.

That fitting has a 1/16NPT. most hardware stores aren't going to have that small. Check an autoparts store, might get luck there.

Once I used the above listed fitting, I used a double female fitting of 1/8 NPT. My local hardward store had several different ones to choose from. 1/16 double female will be far more difficult to find.
