My LBZ has 17,000 mi. this afternoon after all temps had reached the operating range (185 - 200 engine, 150 trans) my oil pressure at idle was just below the 30psi mark. During acceleration (not over 2000 rpm) it would increase to just under 60psi and when cruising at 45 - 50mph @ 1500rpm it was at about 40psi.

NOTE:
(I have installed a DIY oil bypass using a Perma-Cool dual filter head, Amsoil bypass filter and a stock NAPA oil filter)

Should I be concerned?

My truck today pulling my horse trailer at about 57 mph (6 speed ali) around 1500 rpm in sixth was at 40 PSI for about any hour and a half and never moved.
Unloaded i couldnt tell you - I'm never at 57 mph empty :) I'm sure it's normal though!
