First off, you need to label all of the electrical and vacuum lines connecting to the intake manifold. This will make reassembly much easier. Then, there is a torque sequence to be used during disassembly and reassembly.
This image is of the TIGHTENING SEQUENCE. Reverse this to take the manifold off. This is important so that the upper intake manifold is not warped at all, which would decrease the quality of the seal. Be careful during disassembly and reassembly to avoid bending any lines or tubes. If things are in your way, disconnect them rather than pushing them to the side. This will avoid pinching inner linings which cannot be seen visually.
As for the gaskets, (as far as I am aware), Chrysler's (Dodge's) official stance on the manifold gaskets is that they are reusable. However, this is if they ALL look good under close inspection. Any tears, "melting", or other damage means the gaskets should all be replaced. They are not expensive, and I believe they all come as a set including both upper and lower gasket sets. Personally, I would recommend replacing them regardless. This would be a good preventative step to help extend the life of the vehicle. Also be sure to check the cooling line O-rings and replace them as necessary, following the criteria above.
Good luck and I hope this helps, even though I see it is a bit late.

Hello, You remove the headlamp assembly by removing the 3 bolts that hold it in place. The bolts are #1 in the following picture:

This is alittle tricky getting to some of the bolts but its not too hard to do otherwise. 2 bolts hold on the starter IIRC they are 13mm bolts. make sure your battery is dissconected by the black cable. then there will be 2 nuts holding on the starter wires. one will be 8mm and the other 13mm. remove them with care cause the wires may and can break. when you remove starter check wires for corrosion or if they look fraigle. repair them if damaged.
then to put it back in is the same way you took it out. should take about 1.5 hrs total if you have never done it before.
Overall i would say skill level 3/10 only cause its trickey getting to that top bolt sometimes.

The fuse box is located under the hood. There is component map printed on the inside of the cover. This tells you on your model where the fuse or relay is located

Tips for a great answer:
Fig. Intake manifold bolt torque sequence 2.7L engine
Upper intake manifold with a new gasket on the lower intake manifold and torque the bolts, in sequence, to: 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm)
Hope helps (remember to rate this answer). Good job.
