The newest pan gaskets are steel-spined rubber gaskets that are reusable. Just ensure that the bolts are all properly snugged and that the pan is not damaged (such as from bottoming out or snagging a boulder). Any leaks still occur, verify there's not another leak source, then if it is leaking, just replace it. Yeah, in a case like that, I've had owners who insist on a new gasket, even though those are reusable, so we just get a price on one, tell them, let them make the final decision there.
Link yourself down to Walmart!
