It is one of those on the drivers side inner fender.
I think it is the smaller one,maybe the second one from the front(should be a 4 wire).
If you have a spare pair of hands,have them turn on the ignition and feel if the relay is kicking,if not,use a test light and look for the 12volt lead and use a jumper to the opposite wire and see if the pump kicks,if yes new relay.

I am not that smart,I am guessing.
If no results,we will try other things.

Next,check for voltage at the pump,check for a good ground.
if you have a long enough piece of wire,run a jumper straight to the pump( hate to say it but you might have to lift that side of the bed to get to it),if it kicks,bad wire someplace,if not,a pump.

There should be fusable links in the harness at those relays.
