2001 4.7 Timing Cover

Are all 4.7 timing covers the same? My 2001 needs a replacement (Part# 53020793). All the ones i’ve found online are Part# 53021227AA, however they all look identical. I can’t seem to find one with the original P/N. Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

Interesting..... The part number coming up for my '01 w/4.7 on Moparpartsgiant.com is 5016653AB.
The part number you're listing is for a 4.0L engine.

They changed the way they seal and the gasket used in mid 02 I believe. The older style was one big aluminum framed gasket, the cover itself is flat where it interfaces with the block. The later ones have machining done to the cover and use "o-ring" style gaskets.
The cover itself will fit either way, only the gasket style changed.

2004 Limited, 4.7 modded slightly, IRO 3" RockLink LA front, adjustable SA rear, Bilsteins, Addco bar, JKS disconnects. Coming attractions include 242hd, IRO SYE and Woods DS right after the new engine/trans..
