Icon5 Quick question?

Do you have to use a gasket when replacing the differential fluid or could you just use silicone?

some of the threads I read say they only put silicone on it. and I saw this DIY thing that said you use silicone and a gasket. And I have no I dea where to get a gasket at I don't think that advance auto or autozone carries gaskets right.

buy the blue or black rtv, its much easier to use than a gasket that will probably leak.
