No gaskets for the 2006 commander. All the parts catalogues are wrong.
Thank you Racer X!
Here are a few pictures of the fittings.
the flange for the muffler
The pipe from the catalytic converter to the muffler.
The exhaust manifold to the down pipe going to the catalytic converter.
Should have this wrapped up tomorrow, I'll post a quick step by step for anyone else who may come along with a 3.7 in need of this job.
Honestly on paper it's straight forward in real life it's a PITA. Mostly because of stuck exhaust bolts, which were a pain in the motor swap. For any looking at replacement parts the magnaflow looks real nice it's also two piece design which made reinstallation easier. The factory one piece design is cumbersome to remove and difficult get out from under the jeep, took lifting it a few more inches to come free of the frame.
Honestly if you know an decent shop I'd let them handle it, if it's not too pricy. I'd swap the motor on a commander again, just wouldn't want to do this job if it were avoidable.
Hopefully tomorrow it's all finished and I'll know how well the new cats do and any difference to how it sounds and runs.
