I did both on my 4.0. Really easy. Just unbolt the covers, clean up, silicone the corners, put new gasket on, bolt cover back on.

(may be necessary to move some other things out of the way first - had remove upper radiator hose on mine, but I think that was it)

Just don't undo anything when you don't know what it is.

Oh, get a service/maintenance manual from the local store. I've had good luck with HAYNES manuals. Worth every penny of the $20 over and over again.
