You really want to use the Mopar-recommended sealant. Some people have reported success with aftermarket brand stuff (got your ears on, Steve?) but all in all, the $14 is well worth it, and one tube will do the job for several changes.
On the other hand, there is a TSB out there for a *steel* pan gasket available by special order at the dealer. You don't have to use any sealant with this one. It's pricey at around $30, but it's reusable three times, and once you go through the pain of cleaning the old RTV goop off the first time, it makes the job much easier and quicker the second and third. I just put one on my 42LE last summer, and it seals every bit as well as the RTV goop. It took me some persuading to get the dealer to look up the TSB (they typically seem to have the "I know everything and you don't" virus) but once I did, they were able to get the part for me by the next day. If you want the TSB number, I can find it for you in my garage at home, just email me.

DISCUSSION:
A reusable silicone gasket has been developed to replace the RTV method of sealing the automatic transmission oil pan. Due to more frequent Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) change intervals and the possibility of the fluid foaming if it comes in contact with uncured RTV it is recommended that this gasket be used in all applications.
NOTE: THIS GASKET CAN BE REUSED UP TO THREE (3) TIMES.
PARTS REQUIRED:
**1 05011113AA Gasket, Transmission Oil Pan, 31TH** **1 05011114AA Gasket, Transmission Oil Pan, 42LE** 1 05011115AA Gasket, Transmission Oil Pan, 41TE/AE
