Something is not right in a big way. It's either not breathing properly, has a bad miss, or is being starved of fuel.

That is.. if in neutral it won't rev past 3k. If your talking about in gear.. then it could be a dragging brake or something.

it got the 4.0 auto and its a 2002 xlt extended cab 4 door
i havnt looked at it yet but plan too this weekend so if you can tell me what to look for or how to rule things out that would be good .
also he said it wont go over 50 .

Yeah, dont bother.. save yourself in the long run.. find a truck that works... The guy is doing you a favor telling you whats wrong with it.. and you coudl spend thousands tracking it down adn fixing stuff for it.
