You'd have to get at least two gallons of anti freeze just in case cause you're gonna lose some when you drain the radiator. On my D, the t-stat is located on the bottom hose coming from the rad. In my situation, I'd have to get under the engine and disconnect the hose from the t-stat. The t-stat should be held on by two bolts. The recommended replacement would be an 180 degree t-stat. While you're down there why not replace the hose and replace the factory clamps w/ screw-type hose clamps? Wouldn't hurt but would certainly help... Just my .02, HTH.

Get a 180 degree T-stat replacement.

I'll just give a piece of the 2000 Service Manual I'll attach.

Should be the same.

To answer your question, no I don't have a 2001 service manual in the D but i got it in Ram and Dakota.

Use a stock replacement stat on the 4.7l and remember to burb it afterwards!
