Default What is your guys method?!?

In lieu of the cam swap i had planned this weekend, being that i have all the supplies but still no cam , i got a rather large shipment in from amsoil. So im looking to change my transfer case and front and rear diffs fluid. The question i have for you is when you guys pull your pan do you use gaskets, some sort of RTV sealant, or double down and use both? i have both the felpro gaskets and the permatex dedicated diff sealant but im just curious to what and why everyone else does.

I've done both(not together). I've not had any issues with felpro gaskets so if I had one I'd use that. The RTV works well if you do it right, but it is a bit messy.

I do have both, mostly incase i get the covers off and there is some damage to the mating surfaces which would require the rtv, but my plans are for just the gaskets. Thank you for your response makes me feel better knowing there has been luck with felpro gaskets
