thanks. i think all i do is pop the 2 screws off and drop the new in right?
Yes, it is about the easiest thing you will do. A little bit of coolant will come out. Make sure you put the gasket on the new one, it might come with one. It is at the front of the intake manifold, you can follow the upper rad hose to it. I'd tell you exactly where it is, but i have no idea what motor you have.

I know it is a 4.3, but year, and injection style are things that can move the thermostat around.

Unless you are low on coolant to begin with you shouldn't have to add any. Be sure to do this with the engine cold, and put the new thermostat in right side up.
