Torn cv boot. Not terribly expensive if you do it yourself.

Looks like wet boot though... might need a bear or bushing or whatever the hell is on the differential side as well.

Meh... keep a spare in the truck and just drive around with that one til it falls off or something.

Seriously, you're probably fine for a long time.

Reboot kit will cost like $13. Not a hard job at all. Or buy a replacement cv with lifetime warranty and keep OEM as spare.

I'd replace it. If you've been driving on it with it torn, shit can get in there and yeah. Replacing the boot is messy and moar annoying then just replacing it.

It's really not that bad, at least on the 1st gens. Just time consuming for the first couple times. After that it's quick and easy.

OP, I think I have a new in box boot at the house from when I had my 2001 Taco. I'm not sure what model you have but I'll look for the boot tonight. If I have it, it's all yours.

Jon I looked last night but I couldn't find that thing anywhere. I can picture the dang box and I remember seeing it I just don't know where. Sorry man. I would go with what the other guys said though and replace the whole thing. That is why I had the spare boot. I found this that might help you.

Clamp the boot back to the cv axle and don't worry about it. As long as the grease is sealed inside you're fine.

my boot had a leak last summer, forgot about it and looked at it a couple days ago, inner boot was in 2 seperate pieces. Not a spot of grease left in it. Not sure how long it had been that way. Just got 2 re-man'ed cv axels from Autozone. Smthg like 60 a piece plus core charge.

Just a matter of price, time, and your abilities???

You can re-boot the CV with a reboot kit, or for a little money more buy a reamanned one from autozone for $60
