On the fuel side if you haven't changed the fuel filter then that would be great start. Now you said the speedo goes nuts and then the bike shuts off? Hmm....Does it throw trouble codes? It could be the "brain/computer" starting to get weak. Check and make sure it is fastened down and secure . The vibration at those speeds could be shaking it up and making havoc with signal. It could also be the battery connection Try checking the posts and see if they need cleaning or tightened . While your there check the voltage when the bike is not running and again while running in nuetral. This may give signs to a stator problem. Common for this year bike. Personally I suggest taking it to the dealer. Something like this can be a nightmare for the average person and quickly make an enjoyable bike your worst enemy. Have you tried riding the bike to the dealer and just asking what it could be? I have found if you go in looking for "free advice" you will get the ...Well is your bike here? No? then how about making an appointment? ...But if you ride it in and ask the same questions and tell them I rode it in and can't leave it ,but any idea's? More times than not they will try to help on the spot as not to lose future business.

2004 5.7 Auto 3.55 Quad 242K 1/4 Tank of fuel. After running 75 mph on Interstate for 330 miles pulled off freeway to get something to eat and no restart after 10 minutes. Cranks but will not start....

i am not sure about the 2004 models.[i left dodge in early 2004] but all the previous years had a problem with running out of gas with 1/4 tank reading on gauge. it may be when you parked truck is sitting at a different angle than it was on the road, causing what fuel was in there to drain away from the pump. easy check is to crank engine a coupl of seconds then locate the shrader valve on the fuel rail on intake and depress the valve core [like letting air out of a tire] if air or mostly comes out under a little pressure then you are out of gas also i dont know your tank capacity but if all of a sudden your getting better mileage than before then that would indicate out of gas. a new fuel level sender is needed if out of gas.

This is an idea not a for sure. Bad or worn valves can cause what you describe. Had something similar happen to an 2004 Toyota. Due to bad lubrication, crazy huh?
