Gas gauge stopped working today...HELP!

My 1987 Wrangler's gas gauge has been working like normal. Got in it this morning and it won't even move and I know for sure it wasn't stolen during the night. Do Wranglers have a tendency to do this? Does anybody know what could be the problem?(Blown fuse, exc?) Please help!!!

Sending Unit?

Does the Jeep still run? It could possibly be a worn sending unit or a poor connection on the back of the gauge. I would look at the sending unit first.

YJ gauge clusters are known for not being very reliable. The only thing that works well on mine is the clock. My gas gauge has a mind of its own. Empty used to be @ 1/4 tank. Now it doesn't work at all. I plan on replacing all of my gauges eventually.
