Default Output shaft speed sensor

Does anyone know the location of the output shaft speed sensor for a 99 Ram 5.9 4x4. The Haynes doesnt list that sensor or location it only lists the (vss). the rear wheel speed sensor is part (rwal) so is this the same sensor as the output speed sensor. or is it on tranny, or transfer case

Coincidentally, my speed sensor just went 2 days ago. Went to advance auto and purchased a new one for $20. The location of the sensor is on the transmission itself; on the underside (drivers side accessible). It's a plastic housing so be careful not to break the housing while it's still in the transmission. Lol best bet is to clean out the connector before installing the new speed sensor. Some transmission fluid may come out but not a sufficient amount.

As for the other sensor (rear wheel speed sensor), it's on the rear pumpkin.

Hope I was able to help out, any more questions let me know!
Cheers, Cody
