Sppedo / Odo dead.... it was immediate... any help be nice

Hey guys, I just got my truck tonight at work... On the way home... I was running a steady 70 and the odo was perfect.... Then... It died. Sudden.... The speedo droped to zero... and the Odo died same time. VSS or speedo head? Or is it something as simple as a fuse died for it?

I replaced the VSS today..... Nothing.... So I am assuming it's the head.

Weird thing is it worked fine this morning again for about 5 minutes. then died again.
