Underhood light and EVIC questions
So I just traded in my beloved 99 Sport 4x4 on an 09 1500 Quad 4x4 SLT 4.7L. I ordered the underhood light and wiring jumper from the dealer and picked it up today. My question is, what is used to hold the light to the hood? The hole on the hood looks like it is made for a push in retainer like the ones used to hold the hood insulation. Hoping someone can confirm this so i know what I need to get. Also, on the EVIC, the manual says it should show the oil pressure and oil temp in the system info. Mine only has coolant temp, tranny temp, and engine hours. Anyone know if this oil info was an option and if so can it be added now. So far I've gotten the "we're not sure about that" from two dodge dealers. It's got full gauges, so its not critical, but if I can get it I would like to. So far I'm happy with the new truck, now just need to add all the goodies to make it mine! Thanks for any help!

I believe mine shows them in the order:
Coolant Temperature
Oil Pressure
Oil Temperature
Transmission Temperature
Engine Hours

(Yesterday I went through them while driving the 3.5 hrs home from my daughters college with the truck loaded with her dorm room items)

I have a 09 Sport with the 5.7 Hemi and the full instrument package.

On the light, mine was from the factory and I believe they are held in by a plastic fastener "christmas tree" type.

Thanks Andy,
Thats what I was thinking about the light. I guess i assumed (incorrectly) that it would come with mounting hardware. The wiring jumper has the fasteners attached.
My EVIC doesn't have the oil info, maybe it wasn't available with the 4.7
I was hoping it would only need the computer flashed and maybe a different sending unit or something.
