Its about 3200 or so. The reason the redline is so high is because when your in tow haul and coming down a hill with a trailer the trans will downshift and use the engine as a brake to slow the truck and the RPMs can go up into that range.

The older trucks have a dashed redline starting around 3200 but people would come into the dealer thinking there is a problem when the Tach shows 4500 coming down a hill. If you touch the gas it upshifts so you can't operate it in that range but it works great as a speed brake.

So GM took out the dashed Redline so the idiots would quit complaining that something is wrong. :)

Owners manual says dmax can safely go to 4800 rpm in grade braking, under power stops at 3200 rpm.

Fuel shutoff on LBZ 3450 rpm and 3250 on LLY in a truck. Info on "06 LLY and LBZ differences" sticky.
