Considering it's a compact pickup truck with leafspring/torsion bar suspension, truck tires and pickup truck brakes -- and if you've got a 4WD, a high centre of gravity -- a speed limiter is the least of your problems at that speed.
I'm pretty sure it's a speed limiter, not a rev limiter. When I tested mine (I've got a 5-speed), the tach wasn't anywhere near redline when it topped-out. I'd guess it's to protect the transfer case, transmission and the rest of the driveline, not to mention the driver.
If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.
