Whats a good oil pressure sending unit?

'96 XJ 4.0 here and i replaced my oil press sending unit couple years ago and it seems like it's going bad again. I probably got this one at an O'reilly's and I'm not sure who made it.

Where would you find a decent oil pres sending unit that's not too pricey?

I'd go for the Mopar one. I went through 2 OReilly's Oil Pressure SU's for my 4 liter TJ and both failed within 3 months. One was house brand and the other was BWD. Bought a mopar one for $60 and I havent had problems in a year.

A buddy told me that it might be some of my wiring is going bad. How would I check the ground for the sending unit? Not sure exactly where that would be. Wanna make sure that's good before I spend some doh.

Played with the wiring at the sensor connector and the gauge seems to be behaving better. But since I've always had this problem I'm not entirely sure what it should look like.

What's the normal behavior of an oil pressure gauge? Mine seems to be sitting generally straight up at idle and goes up slightly when I hit the gas. I would assume oil pressure increases the more strain is put on an engine.
