Default No RPM past 3,000

Today while starting the normal get ready for winter crap, I did the air silencer removal mod, I also wanted to do the fog lite mod, but there is no relay in the location that STL showed in the nebe mods section.
Now my RPM, when I sit in the drive I cannot rev past about 3000, the eng misses and appers to want more fuel.
I took it on the street,(I live on a state road) and while in gear and driving it runs OK, I can punch it and the RPM's will go all the way to the top of the guage, the truck shifts at about 5500 and will not miss at any rpm I run at, seams to be only when I'm stoped and in park.
I have no scanner at home only at the job, Im off till sunday, I am looking for some place to start.

It's working perfectly normal. The limiter does that in park and neutral.

WAIT!! LET ME GO SEE IF I'M A LOOSER.
Nawwwww. I like my tires on the truck, not the pavement.
My dad wont buy me new tires any more.
And the worden, opps the boss, opps I mean the wife got me new sneckers last Xmas. So I got 75% left, and I'm pretty CHEP when it comes to spending money on tires.
