Cracked block, options?

Thought my coolant leak was a cracked head, but pulled the heads today and there is a crack in the cylinder wall on my 1999 4.0 liter.

What are my options as far as an aftermarket or rebuilt short block? I've already got new heads if they can be bought minus heads.

^ Agreed. It'll be much cheaper to just find a used engine and drop it in.
