The speedometer on this Trooper is controlled electronically. When the speedometer stops working, does the transmission act funny, or down shift hard?

Then this will have to be a problem in the cluster or the speedometer head itself.

Most often the electrical motor that runs the speedometer will get hot and stop working till it can cool off.

Test drive it and see if the odometer is still clicking off. If it is the speedometer head will be your problem.
