Can't find the damn fuse box....

I want to check the fuses that control the 4x4 solenoid. I have a 2005 Ford F150 Lariat. I read the manual over and over. It says the fuse box located under the right side of the instrument panel. I looked. I looked. And I looked again. I still don't see anything that looks like a fise box. I can't find that damn fuse box. Can someone help me?

Thanks in advance....

Look under my feet? So the box is on the passenger side. I looked there on the right side of the instrument panel. Is there a panel I should remove to get to it? The manual is not clear.

according to ford:

I am glad to have manuals but sometimes they are not correct. I had to replace the drivers side mirror and followed Haynes but could not get the door panel off, re read, re read and then found a screw that was not even mentioned - that's why sometimes you just skip the manual and come here.

the fuse box is under the instrument cluster on the 97-03 trucks, i wonder if they just copy and pasted to the new user manual, and no one told the secretary that they moved the box
