Searching- New Valve Cover

I Have a Jeep 2.5L 4cyl Comanche Custom. I am looking for a replacement valve cover, not plastic! Any suggestions on where to look? I am in Phoenix, AZ. The Crown brand plastic valve cover does not fit my truck. My current plastic valve cover is cracked to all hell and leaking oil.

JC whitney, thats where i got mine, and there like $90. here is some info, that valve cover does have torque specs it's like 18 inch pounds or something like that. they dont make metal valve covers for the 2.5L amc motor.

2.5 four wheel drive.

Thanks for the info I got the valve cover. Does your comanche have CCV system instead of the PCV system for valve cover ventilation? I am having trouble with oil leaking from the top of the dip stick and around the oil cap.
