To change your oil pressure gauge to digital, you will need an oil pressure gauge kit (gauge, harnesses, pressure sensor LED version) and the proper tools to remove the old gauge and harness and just replace it with the digital version. It's really simple but time consuming.

if it is electrical oil pressure sensor I would start there. The best way to see if you have a major problem is to use a mechanical oil pressure tester. Take off the oil pressure sensor and put the mechanical tester on. The tester should come with a Gage. If it comes within your trucks oil pressure range than all is fine and replace the sending unit and see if that don't help your problem.If the tester runs high then the oil pump is bad or your cam-bearings could be the problem. But with cam-bearings you would usually get a low reading.

SOURCE: high oil pressure in my humer h2
If you had read the Owners Manual, the H2's Oil specification is 5w30 and not 10w30. I only know this because I own one. Before doing so please resort to owners manual to verify the oil type. This is what I would do but don't quote me. I am no H2 professional mechanic. I am very sure H2's technical problem may originate from the oil sensor. in turn it may affect the spark plugs (only) and oil filter. By changing out the oil, oil filter, spark plugs and oil sensor it should return to normal.

if your engine is a 3.2 or 3.5,
the sending unit is beside the filter and screws in the motor,
if your unlucky and your engine is a 2.7,it is on the right side of engine on lower half .

While engine is running, open the cover where you add oil to engine and see if you see a good flow of oil, if good flow, could be as easy as replacing oil sending sensor. got to realize that if poor maintenance history your engine may not be building enough pressure at iddle to move your hydraulic operated valves, only when you rev it up it will pump enough to run smooth. if running engine too long, you may cause more damage to other engine components such as crankshaft and cam shaft bearings. if you can spare a few bucks, have a good mechanic check your oil pressure with a mechanical gauge. another cheap option is to replace oil pump. last resort if you love your truck as much as we do,replace engine or rebuild it. At 205,000 this is a normal symptom, other than timing chain problems, most engines don't make it that far. hope this helps!

The oil sending unit is located on the engine block behind the drivers cylinder head area.You have to climb up on the motor to see it cause it is hard to see behind the wiring harness.You may also want to purchase a new sending unit because it is very long and you might need to buy the sending unit socket to replace it.Hope this helps.Good luck.
