What would have caused this......

I am driving down the freeway and my radio goes silent. Just as I look down at my factory gauges all of them flip back to zero and then come right back??????

sounds like you lost a power, or ground. my radio would not come on for a minute sometimes, but after i had the dash apart for the f650 mod, the problem went away

not sure where exactly for you to look, but it does sound like a loose connection.

In my F150 a few years back my speedo went to all dash marks..... alt took a dump on me. Like the others said, in your case it sounds like a loose wire

I would say look for a loose wire connection. In my bosses 7.3 the guages and radio cuts out and if you punch the dash it comes back on.
