Intake to exhaust manifold gasket

Maybe it doesnt matter, but Ill try to ask. I have 80 CJ-7 258 and I have my intake manifold and exhaust manifold off. The new gasket to attach them together is flat on one side and dimpled on the other. I am re using the intake manifold but installing new exhaust manifold due to many cracks in the old one. Does it matter which side of the gasket i put to the intake or exaust manifold? I was assuming the flat side goes to the intake surface.

I believe I've always put mine dimpled side to the manifold. It made sense to me since it's the "crush" side and you're crushing the manifold to the block.

sorry if i did not exlain it properly, i am talking about the rectanglular gasket that goes between the intake manifold and exhaust manifold for when they are bolted together. Have you ever had the two apart before?

If I remember correctly, one side had a metallic surface. I believe I put that surface towards the hottest part, the exhaust manifold.

gotcha, sorry I didn't read that correctly. My manifolds don't made up, they have this stupid $40 tube running between them that you have to buy separately from the jeep dealership

I'd do like skiz says.
