rear differential change

do i need a gasket/rubber seal or can RTV do just fine? Went out and bought a gasket/seal for the rear diff and completely forgot about using RTV.

I just used RTV on my old truck, the first time, but the second time I serviced it I used a gasket and a very thin coat of RTV on both sides of it..
