It's a very easy procedure. Just get an aerosol can of throttle body cleaner and take the intake tube off. You will see all the black carbon built up in there. Personally I like to remove the entire throttle body, but most people just clean them on the truck. A small toothbrush comes in handy for the tough stuff. Get it as clean as possible especially where the throttle blade meets the inner wall of the throttle body. Good luck and let us know how it works out for you.
