With new shocks?? If you're not worried about them matching color, I'd say check JC Whitney.

IMO, id wrather not have boots. i could be completely wrong in this idea, but id think that they trap dirt, water and mud in them and cuase damage to the shocks. correct me if im wrong anyone but ive never run boots on any of my trucks

I have never run boots on any of my shocks (mainly Ranchos). They seem to work just fine w/o the boots. Have known folks who ran shock boots and found that they trapped moisture inside and that lead to rusting on the rods (then no longer run them).

Ive heard that also, so when i upgrade mine, the boots will come off, before the shocks go on.
