Default 42RLE pan drop - RTV or gasket when reassembling?

WHat have you all used, I know it comes with Mopar RTV from the factory but the kit I got (Wix) has a cork gasket.. That being said, did you use RTV Mopar (what color)? or the gasket?

thanks

When I took my truck in to get the fluid changed at a local shop they used black RTV to seal it.

as far as i know only the older vehicles that use cork gaskets are to use sealant. Newer vehicles use rubber gaskets and don't need sealant. I used just the rubber gasket. It came with the filter. Sealant is more of pain if you don't need it.

Dodge wont have a gasket, any gasket that you find will be aftermarket.

what color is it? full name/ part # by chance? I ask because the parts person knows less about their parts and lookup system than I probably do. More than once I've gotten the wrong item.
