2000 wrangler oil guage stuck at 80

2000 wrangler 4.0 automatic oil guage was working perfectly all of a sudden it now goes up to 80 and stays there, any ideas, the engine temp is normal and it doesn't seem to be starving for oil.

The oil pressure sender is just on top of the oil filter housing and points toward the firewall. You can see it easily if you look at the oil filter from above. It doesn't thread directly into the block, it threads into the oil filter housing.
