The 3000 RPM N/P rev limiter was added around 2000, IIRC. 1994 definitely didn't have it.

rev limiter at 3000 rpm
speed limiter at 92mph
this truck will sure hit 92 pretty fast for a truck though-brother keeps trying to talk me into taking it to the track, but im not sure, if i dont do it i wont want to keep doing it

The manuals don't have the 3K limiter. It is automatic only, in neutral and park.
