Diff cover gasket

What do you guys recommend for using as a gasket on your diff cover after an oil change?

We used this stuff on when we did a couple of 8.8 swaps a couple of weekends ago. It is amazing. It comes in a can similar to that spray cheese stuff. It goes on so easy and so much more accurately than the tube stuff above. I'm not even sure where to get the stuff. A buddy works at a boat shop and brought it over. I can promise you I will be finding it though. From what I saw online it costs around $12 a can but is well worth it.

I have used both of the above. The "Right Stuff" can also be gotten at Autozone. I have not had a problem with either. The only time I had a problem with the "right stuff" was on a valve cover. Finally on the third try I got it to seal with some blue RTV. Don't know if it was the gasket material or if I just got lucky.

Ultra Gray for me... Either black or gray will work fine.

I would never touch any of the other silicones, certainly not the non ultra stuff.

That is funny... I thought it was "Modern RTV: Throw you gasket away!"

It works damn good.....and you can get several diffs done from just this one tube and b/c its uses a caulk gun you can get good even beads.
