I am a former gm and now new to dodge tech. the gasket that i posted looks like a reusable gasket. Even if the dealership does not have a reusable gasket for your truck...Do an internet search and you will find good quality reusable gaskets.
when you reuse them, just power wash them off and inspect them. do not use mineral spirits, brake cleaner etc.
I don't for see a problem with using rtv but i prefer to use what the manufacturer call for. Sometimes gaskets are used in an assembly for clearance...like the 6.7 oil pan...if the gasket is removed and rtv used...the crank hits the pan.
