Bleeding air from coolant

Hey guys had to take the radiator off the highlifter to clean it really well before I install the rogue radiator cover. What the the easiest way to bleed all the air out of the coolant system? Thanks.

Iíve seen people burp the system, meaning they squeeze the top hose as they pour it in.
Iíve seen people pull the bottom hose while they pour in and once it starts coming out the bottom they put the bottom hose back on.
Iíve seen people leave the cap off for the first 30-45 seconds after refilling and starting.
Some vehicles have drain plugs you can pull until it starts coming out.
Iíve also seen people reverse feed fluids from bottom up.
Iíve seen people do a combination of a few Iíve listed.

Generally elevate the front of the machine 15-20 inches off the ground, leave the cap off, bring the engine up to operating temperature (thermostat open), and let it cycle (thermostat opening and closing) a few times

Ok thanks guys. I wasnít sure if it mattered that the radiator was up top on the rack and didnít know if I had to do it different.
Thanks.

On anything ive owned i just take the radiator cap off and run the engine till it gets hot. You will see when t-stat opens because fluid level in the radiator drops.

Once the stat opens and the level drops, top it off with coolsnt and let it run a few minutes to bleed all the air out.
