    If u have a torn boot just pull whole half shaft go to auto zone and use the old one for core charge, and get a new replacement. Lifetime warranty! Even if a boot tears the replace it! As long as u keep the box lol.

    I thought of that, but I think I'd like a tougher made boot on there so it doesn't it happen as often. Even if they get replaced for free, there's still there hassel of removal and reassembly each time and to me, it's worth it to do it less often just for that reason even if it's a little more money out of my pocket.

    Anyway, regarding the boots from NW Offroad, they are $17.95 each. I asked a bit about them and they said they are an OEM fit, the material is much stronger than stock and that they've sold hundreds of them with no negative feedback.

    The past couple of days I did come across another set that are high angle from Offroad Solutions, see here: http://www.offroadsolutions.com/old/manual_hub_conversion.html

    Their site is currently INOP, but I did recieve a response back from a rep who told me that I could PayPal them if I wanted to purchase a set. I think for now I'm going to go with the NW boots, do the boot slide mod to them and see how they hold up. I like the idea of these high angle boots sold by Offroad Solutions, but for over $100 including shipping, I'm not sure if they are really going to be that much better than the NW boots especially after doiong the boot slide mod to them which I would do to the ORS boots anyway. We'll see. If these NW boots don't hold up for long, than I'll give the Offroad Solutions boots a shot.

    The auto zone ones if u tear a boot u get a whole new axle shaft assembly....FYI.

    Pretty easy to take apart if u r just replacing the upper boot. I'm sure there is a write up here somewhere....
