WJ Rear Diff Gasket

Has anybody found a cheap Rear Diff Gasket for the Dana 44 on these WJ's? The last time I did the fluid change in my 2000 I used the sealer, which is fine, but it requires a 24 hour curing which I want to avoid. I do see regular gaskets available but they match to the 44 but to Wrangler Dana 44, not the WJ 44. I see the EXPENSIVE reusable gasket, but I am too cheap for that.

Use the Permatex "right stuff" dries within 5 minutes or such and just use a 1/8 bead, trust me this stuff does wonders.

Those are the two options I know of: Permatex Black for about $7 a tube, or Lubelocker gasket for about $20 on Amazon. I think most people on here would recommend the latter.

Thanks Juan. I know there was/is an RTV product specifically for differentials. I hadn't heard about The Right Stuff. Its pretty pricy though almost as much as the LubeLocker gasket. Thanks.
