Default Coyote engines

How strong is the coyote 5.0? Like can it take daily 4-5k revs each shift? Mine has 23,000 miles I just was wondering how dependable they are.

4-5k is nothing for these motors. They can rev to the limit regularly, but I don't do it unless I am really trying hard to go fast, but I wouldn't recommend it every shift, or hold it at the limiter for any extended periods of time...
The motor isn't in it's highest power range until the 4-5k range, so feel free to go that high regularly.
All are my opinion based on facts that I have read. But they set the rev limiter to keep you from breaking the motor, so if you don't hit it you won't have a very high chance of breaking unless you do other things to hurt the motor.

4-5k is nothing. I do that daily and I am not even trying (3.73 gears). They can handle 6.5k no problem. I do that whenever I am really getting on it. Which is somewhat common for me.

Pretty sure the springs and valve train can handle the high shifts, being a high performance motor. Over rev it or drop it in the wrong gear at WOT and you'll spin a rod bearing just like any other motor lol.
