Yup there was one on there, see my first post. The gasket ended up in the oil catch basin, fell of when I drained the oil from the old factory filter. I was initially concerned because I could not find it. It's because of this forum that I made double sure the old gasket was not left on the engine. I've heard what can happen and the mess it can make if you double gasket the filter .......

I have had 5 new Dodge trucks during the years and I firmly believe they have a 400 lb. ex sumo wrestler installing all the factory oil filters. Every one of the filters was beyond tight. I have learned to take my new trucks to the dealership to have the first oil change done. Let them deal with it the first time.
