Default 5.7 Hemi Redline? What is it?

I bought a 2003 Hemi 5.7L with only 3,400 miles on it for towing and I don't know the redline! Can anyone help? Here is what it is:

2003 Dodge
3500 one ton
duallie
4X4
quad cab
Lariate pkg
5.7 hemi

It does not have the tach marked with a redline and I don't want to push it past it's limit while towing. I can't find it in the manual. This is very aggravating! HELP!

Well, the Hemi's have a "redline" at about 5,500 rpm. You'll know it, it won't go past that, it has a rev limiter and will stop power and wont go past 5500. Do you have an automatic? If so, then it will shift at 5500. If you have a manual, and you go to 5500, you'll feel the rev limiter. Try it, its not too bad for it, just to feel it, so you know.
