Won't rev past 2500 in park or in any gear? Check for proper throttle cable operation and make sure it is not binding

Knock retard limitations by the pcm on a stock tune, it can pull:
15.0 degrees at low RPM's
5.0 degrees at 6000 RPM
9.0 degrees at 4800 RPM's.

you can still drive the truck it has a rev limiter activated that won't let it go past 2500 rpms. you can smash the gas in neutral or driving down the road it will just bouce off 2500 rpms

Try removing the battery cables for about 10 minutes... Touch them together and then reinstall.

Sounds like the truck is in limp mode... Is it throwing any codes? Try resetting the ECU by taking off your negative battery cable for 10 min.
