im not 100% familar with rams, but usually the housing for the thermostat is in the housing that has the top rad hose attached. usually 2 smallish bolts that need to be removed and the housing should pop off. the thermostat itself may need a little hudge with a flathead screwdriver to come loose but shouldnt be stuck too bad. thier may be something else in the way of the housing, but being a v8 truck it should be easy to get to.
