If you have thick or short arms, get someone else to do the job.

This might be the exception, but most Dodge light trucks with automatic transmission have a crank sensor near the top of the bell housing just to the drivers side of centerline. Unplug the connector from underhood, passenger side (if you can see it) then from underneath the truck remove the 7/16th head bolt from the sensor. You may need a swivel and very long extension to remove this bolt. You may also need to remove the shifter linkage if this vehicle has an automatic transmission; don't forget to set the parking brake.

Once the bolt is removed, you should be able to give the sensor a short twist like a spark plug wire boot, then pull it out.

On the other hand, we might be talking about a 'logical' crank sensor that exists only in PCM software and is created based on cam sensor data from the pickup in the distributor. Either way, really. Can I have another beer now?
