2.5 Ltr Valve Cover Question

Was the 2.5 4 banger ever available with a metal/aluminum valve cover? Mine is cracked and if any ever shipped with a metal valve cover I will look to source one of them over finding another plastic one.
Im just trying to seal the leaks up to hold me over til the 5.2/5.9 swap becomes feasible.

Mine is stock and aluminum too. Is it just the pre-'91 2.5's that have plastic valve covers?

Black '91 YJ, pretty much stock for now. Finished engine rebuild. Runs beautifully.

My 93' has a cast aluminum valve cover. I would suggestion combing a boneyard to find a replacement for the meantime until your ready for your swap.
