oil pressure problem

In my 97 wrangler with a 2.5 i am loosing oil pressure once the engine warms up i have about 20 pounds when driving on a mechanical gauge but at idle i have basically nothing has anybody else had an issue llike this and do you think it could be a worn out oil pump or do you believe it would be crank bearings

mine will run at 40 most times then jump up to 80 for a bit then drop back to normal then down to 0 and back up, its weird and more annoying that the dash beeps when it does it

that problem sounds to me like it is the regulator in the dash from what i here when they are out they will do some funny crap. have you tried to hook up a mechanical gauge and see if it does the same thing
