When truck is in idle and i max out rpms the
speedometer will jump around and i am not

The first part just happens. Idk why but I've seen mine do it to, don't make a habit of hitting the Rev limiter in neutral. It sounds like you have the wrong gear ratio in the rear end for what the truck is setup for. Or have a drastically different tire size
