Need some HELP!!

Hey guys this is story.
I was riding with my top down and doors off today. I was just cruisin' and all of the sudden i don't see my RPM meter or my speedometer go UP!!! They both sat at 0 and I was in fourth gear. It happened a lot. I stop at a stop sign turned her off and then on, it worked, but then started to do it again. Or if I ran over a bump it hopped back into position... I don't know the solution to this problem if anyone does, please help...

I have a 98 Jeep Wrangler Sahara, 4.0L 5spd.
Thanks!

for some reason im having trouble finding one when i had the same problem with my 98 there was plenty of them, but all you have to do is remove the gauge cluster what really isnt that hard, and clean the two connecters with a electric contact cleaner and take some dielectric grease on a toothpic and rub it in the contacts and put back together fixed mine never had another problem with it. sorry for the poor right up but im tired

Go to the below. Get your model year TJ's FSM and look it up. I don't have a full version of adobe so I can't cut and paste diagrams here, just text.
