They are in a small box at the inside edge of the stem. There is a transmitter, sensor and battery in the box. The antenna is the stem itself usually. The stems communicate with a module in the truck via radio waves.
There are several types, styles of wheel sensors. Some require a metal vale stem cap for radio use. I don't think the Ford stems require the metal caps though but if you have them, keep them.
I have heard the wheel sensors can be an issue when changing tires and you must be careful to mount/dismount the tire correctly so as not to damage the sensors. If you are thinking about changing your own tires, have someone who knows how walk you through it first.
