Default block drain plugs

Anyone have any clear pictures or guidance where i can find the block drain plugs so i can do a full coolant flushing on my 2004 5.7l 1500 ram. The picture in the service manual is not helping me. I see 2 ~3/4 bolts but they are much higher on the block than i expect and the one on the drivers side is not accessable with out removing other items. Should i be looking towards the front of the block or more towards the middle?

I would just purchase a flush kit from a parts store and not fool with draining the block.

Glad to help. Don't forget to use the correct coolant (HOAT) when you refill.
