Help need with install of new gas door on Rubicon

I have a 2008 Rubicon with the stock open gas cap design and I would like to install a locking fuel door. Do I need to add a new gas filler housing unit along with the locking door or is there a housing unit with screws hidden behind the white stock trim? I have seen replacement plastic filler housing for 2006 Jeeps but none for my year. If I do need a new gas filler housing, where would I find one for 2008 Rubicon? I didn't want to start messing around with it until I heard from someone who is familar with adding a fuel door to a 2008 or newer. Any help is appreciated!

X2, got it off ebay for about 2/3 what the dealer charges. The mopar door was a lot better than the other brands I have seen.

I forgot to mention I was looking at buying an AMI chrome door. Mopar may be a better buy since you said it includes the housing and I don't think the AMI does.

The Mopar door is the best out there. Piece 'O Cake to install.
