Default Cracked heads, Coolant in oil.. Need new heads!

Hey guys Im looking for replacement cylinder heads for my 8.0L V10.. The truck is a 99 2500, first i was suspect of the intake gasket. But now and after replacing the intake and head gaskets and not resolving the coolant in oil issue; and reading about all the cracking issues with pre 01 V10s around the head bolts. I'm suspect one or both of my heads are cracked. All surfaces were straight (within .003) I should have had the heads pressure tested when they were off last, but hind sight is 20/20. But the problem only seems to arise when the engine is up to temp, and the shop was just gonna bench test them with neg vacuum room temp on a bench vs a heated dip tank.
Any ways I'm looking for replacement heads, the newer versions or reengineered designs. I have not seen very many on the internet really. Does anyone have any ideas on where is a good place to source OE or aftermarket (maybe) heads for this engine?

I wish there were some better aftermarket heads for our trucks. Unfortunately there aren't any, at least to my knowledge. I don't know if mopar parts has any left in stock.
