NP249 seal questions

I finally bit the bullet and picked up a new viscous coupler and seal kit for my 1995 Grand Cherokee with the NP249. After several hours of pain and suffering, I got the case out and taken apart. For those of you who have bought the vc and seal kit through ebay, does the rear output seal for the rear drive shaft look like a different design than whats from the factory? The factory piece looks like it has almost a little rubber boot on the end of it whereas the ebay seal looks flat. Should I use the one that came with the kit, or is the extra rubber on the factory piece needed? Also, for reattaching the tailshaft back to the transfer case housing, what gasket sealant do you all recommend?
