Valve Cover ?

I went to my local chrysler dealership today to get a new valve cover gasket for my 4.0 91 Wrangler and I find out that there is no gasket for it. The valve cover is just sealed down. I wanted to fix the oil leak coming from the valve cover so I guess I will have to just reseal it. But my question is do any of the 4.0L engines come with a valve cover gasket or is there a way to get one? Thanks in advance.

Get an aluminum cover. Put small amount of sealer in cover only and let it tack up and insert gasket into it. Then put cover on and dont overtighten it. Check thightness of it for a few weeks to make sure it doesnt get lose after driving. Worked on mine.
