looking for head for 258 head

Im looking for a head for my 78 cj5. the only number i found is in the top dead center of the head. 3227258. Im not even sure if this is the right casting number according to some of the threads I looked through. What heads can i put on this motor and any help finding a reasonable priced one would be appreciated.

You are looking for plug and play, so a recent rebuild, correct? Better state what you want, what's for, etc.

Thanks for all the response I took my head to the machine shop this morning to double check and make sure if the head is bad. The head gasket didn't show sign of being bad but maybe ill get lucky and. Just have to buy a gasket set. I should know by the weekend.
