P0740 42RE -- Typical hwy RPM?

I've got 01 Laredo 4.0L & 42RE that is reporting a P0740. I am trying to determine if its really slipping, or just the TCM telling the PCM to illuminate the check engine light.

I started getting the classic 1-2 shift hunts at low speed, that are likely the Governor Pressure sensor & solenoid. Thanks to this forum and Dr.Righteous on JU, I was planning on replacing those. The new P0740 has me worried.

I was hoping the the failing GPS finally threw a code to the TCM, told the PCM, then turn on the light.

How can I determine if it really the TCC slipping?
What RPM is typical at 65mph for a stock WJ 4.0L?
Any help is appreciated.

My highway RPM is just under 2500 if I remember correctly and that's at around 65-70mph.

Depends on the rear gears. Our 99 4.0 42RE turns about 2k at 70mph with 3.55s.
