Default 4.0 head gasket options

Just wondering if there is one gasket that's better than the rest. Any input is appreciated!

I used a MLS head gasket when putting mine together. No problems with boot. I have also used standard gaskets without problems either. Sorry that was probably no help lol.

Use the Victor Reinz MLS 54249 its the same as the MLS Mopar gasket 5302 0754AB and cheaper. Also available at Carquest and Autozone (might have to order it at Autozone their primary supplier is Felpro) and definitely use new head bolts.

Either gasket is good, I have 55,000 miles on my Victor Reinz MLS gasket. Just make sure you use new cylinder head fasteners torque properly.
