Lower intake manifold replacement 4.9l I6

My question is, has anyone come across an aftermarket lower intake or full intake manifold? I tear my truck apart... more than I'd like. And every single time the little ear on the back of the lower intake manifold breaks off, apparently this is a common problem. Just did a complete engine rebuild and during assembly it broke off and trust me I was being as careful as possible. Hours of internet searches has brought me nowhere and all the ones at the junkyard are either broken or break when I install them and I'm sick of it. If there's no aftermarket part would a machine shop somewhere be able to make one maybe? There has to be a better way or I'm just gonna sell the rebuilt and drop a 351 in.
