The throttle body is located on the driver side of the engine compartment.
If throttle plate has not been clean you might want to get a can of carburetor cleaner, remove the inlet snorkel hose and clean around and behind the throttle plate.
The IAC (idle air control) motor may need to be cleaned. The IAC controls your idle rpm.
Good luck, let me know.

SOURCE: idles too high
This is fairly normal on most cars. It is like the choke. When choked, the idle raises up to increase the internal temperature quicker. Also helps free friction of parts due to the cold. Idle is adjusted by the cars computer and o2 sensors.

I have a 2001 Durango with the 4.7 and had the same problem. I changed the Throttle Positioning Sensor, and it has been good ever since.
