Do not be overly surprised if it goes off early either. They sometimes pop at 2,000-2,500 miles and sometimes up to 5,500 miles. There is an integrating algorithm that computes this. Read about it here: http://www.wkjeeps.com/wk_oil_indicator.htm
Dealer told me that they sometimes go off early. Mine did twice at 50K miles, but functioned normally before that and since then.
I do oil / filter change at 5K miles, unless the EVIC message appears about 4.5K miles. Warranty calls for 6K miles (max), especially important if you have extended or lifetime powertrain warranty.
