Valve Cover Gaskets

Posting here and full size jeep networks but I am going to change out my valve cover gaskets this weekend and wanted to know if anyone could recommend and brand and type.

Thanks, Matt

Easy enough - Victor/Reinz (Dana) is my favourite, but Fel-Pro is perfectly acceptable.

I do prefer cork as a material over rubber, but I'm just funny that way. Cork tends to absorb a bit of oil and swell to "finish the seal," which I like. Cork gaskets do require that they be run about 15-30 minutes a fortnight to keep them damp, but that's not a problem if you don't trailer the thing to events only every quarter or something like that...
