Cylinder Head Replacement

i may need to be replacing my 0331 head on my 2000 XJ and i want to avoid it cracking again( i am not sure if it is cracked i am getting it checked this week) and i would like to replace it with a head other than the one that is always cracking is there any alternatives that are still relatively cheap?

If mine cracks I'm going with Alabama Cylinder Head. It bolts right in and is beefed up to prevent cracking. http://www.alabamacylinderhead.com/p...ail.php?id=109
hope this helps

0331 heads from a 2002 + TJ Wrangler. The cracking problem was solved by 2002.
