Head gaskets, valve seals, valve springs and rear main seal from a Dodge/Mopar parts dealer. Their a higher quality than most of the after market part stores. All other gaskets are easier to change out. It just depends on if you have a nice clean truck and you want to keep it that way. Or a rusted out contractors beat-up truck...

OEM exhaust manifold gaskets are the go to gaskets. As for head gaskets Cometic is my choice. I also use Cometic intake manifold gaskets. OEM pan gasket and for the rest...

Cometic has custom thickness available along with custom cut gaskets for large ports. There is no comparing them to other brands in my book.
