High Oil Pressure

I'm having an issue with my son's 92 Wrangler 2.5. He bought it 3 years ago, and it's always running high on pressure. It has just recently begin to climb. It has about 92,000 miles. With the engine warm, ideling showed about 65 Psi. Driving on the interstate took the pressure beyond 80 PSI. The oil is never low, and changed every 3000 miles. The oil currently has less than 100 miles on it. Currently using 10W30.
I changed the sending unit, pressure remained the same. I then connected up a mechanical gauge, the pressure read pretty much the same (3-4 lb difference).
I checked the ccv lines on the outside, no clogs or dirt. I gave in and dropped the pan, and changed the oil pump.There was no sludge, dirt or filings in the pan. Ideling warm now goes to about 55Psi, and the 2500 rpm still almost goes to 80.
What's next?

I think that might be normal, My oil pressure gage is always past the 6... Im not sure if it's normal, but the way i see it is it's better than having low oil pressure.....

If you turn on the key without starting the engine, does it read zero?

You can replace the sender for a few bucks, probably not a bad idea (my sender was bad when I bought mine and read ridiculously high. Happily the oil pressure is still ok with the new sender.

My 95 4 banger reads 40 at idle and just shy of 60 at 2500 rpm (107k). That's with a new sending unit a couple weeks ago. Not real sure what "normal" is. I'm using Mobil 1 10w-30...

It does read zero, I just changed the sending unit 2 weeks ago. I even confirmed the readings with a mechanical guage. I think the readings are ok.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Once it warms up, the Idle drops down to 50 - 55 psi. As you drive, depending on your RPMs, the pressure goes up and down.
