Default SUpposed to do 5.2 Hughes intake manifold gasket?

I was bombing around on the website, and found a common theme of people's magnum intake manifold gaskets going bad. I haven't noticed any problems with my truck, but is this something that I should I just do down the line?

I read somebody write "If it has a Dodge symbol on it, then it leaks!"
So it makes me worried now.

I noticed the good upgrade to do is HUGES 772OR.

Just do it before I have a problem?

Let me know
Thanks

If you don't have a problem, the the updated gasket is probably in place already. No need to spend money on this kit at this time.
