You will have to release the compartment on the right side of the steering wheel in your dash. Then there will be some insulation that you will have to push to the side. There will be a little black box on the firewall with a 5 digit number. I believe the number is printed on a white label. This is the factory code. Once you have that, you can enter it in then press the 1-2 and 3-4 buttons at the same time then enter in your own code. The truck will lock then unlock if you've done it right. Oh yeah - you have to do each step within 5 seconds of each other for it to work.
Remove the hinged compartment under the upfitter switches (or the cubby hole if you do not have upfitter switches).
You can also remove the panel under the steering wheel (that you would remove to access your fuses) and look through a few wires to find it:
The five (5) digit code is on the cream/white box behind the radio, look to the top right of the open fuse box cover through the wires. At the back firewall, look for a 5 digit code on a sticker on a cream/white box. This is not easy but if you try every angle it will appear don't forget to use a very powerful flashlight if you want to see it.
You can also remove the dash and then remove the stereo.
I've probably spent more time reading and learning than hands-on with the truck. I believe I have it narrowed down but now the parts get a little more expensive to just start throwing at it.

I was reading an earlier discussion regarding smoking (white, smells like mostly diesel) at lower RPMs and clearing up as RPMs increase.. My truck does this. I haven't had it diagnosed yet but was hoping to get some feedback before I drop a ton of $$$ on diagnostics. It has been studded and...
My original starter on my '06 6.0 was getting weak. Bought this new starter with great reviews and installed it, truck cranks over very fast and starts awesome. However, more times than not theres a quick grinding as soon as the truck fires and I let off the key. The starter is supposed to be...
So I have 3 injectors on the pass side allowing air to pass horrible during ICP leak test. I pulled the rail and put in Alliant Nipple cup seals. No help. I pulled the rail again and put in new Alliant seals on all 4 injectors top O rings that the nipple cup plugs into. Same result. Of course...
