I haven't seen the purple coolant before. Always just used the green stuff. Someone on here did a test to see how many flushes it took to get the orange coolant out of the truck so he could use the green stuff and it ended up to be like 7 flushes to get a clean green color out of the system. Just mentioning this as if you use the purple stuff and want to go green again this is what it will take. Anyway, to remove as much air as possible I first drill a 1/16" hole in the thermostat for a constant tiny flow of water. You may have seen at the parts store thermostats with little ball bearings built into them, same idea. Anyway the hole will allow the trapped air in the heads to move passed the thermostat as you fill the system. Then I lift the front end (on ramps or curb, not jackstands) so that all the air still in the system travels to the front of the block. Start the truck and let idle. The rest of the trapped air will be pushed through the tiny hole and fluid will start heating the thermostat normally. Check your levels after the truck makes operating temp and top off if needed. Done.
