Location of ECM?

Hi all,
I have a stupid question, where is the ECM located? I bought a used Hypermax chip for my truck and I need to get it re burned. I was asked for the code off of the computer and I have no idea where it is at. Thanks

To pull the computer out you need to pull back the plastic fender liner and loosen the 10mm bolt holding the wiring connection to the PCM. I have no idea if you can read the code sticker on an OBS w/o pulling the PCM.
