Yeah, I just realized this yesterday as I pulled everything apart. Pried back the manifold from the header and no gasket. It labels a gasket, Alldata gives a p/n and a time associated with changing the gasket. But there was no gasket there ...

So I'm guessing this is all normal, why would Jeep list there being a gasket there? More importantly; how do I fix the exhaust leak? RTV?

Most manufacturers run metal to metal out of the factory because everythings flat,when you break rhe seal you need a gasket

Ahhh! So if it's metal-to-metal it simple means no one has put a gasket in there yet (not needed one). But putting in a gasket can help fix/reduce the leaks so long as everything is put in right.

Think I'm on the same page now! Definitely learned something.
