^x2. but I just don't run boots at all. Keeps the shafts clean and no need to remove any boots to get the packed in dirt/mud/rocks/sand out of 'em damaging the seals. All around, even a DD, no boots = better.

Don't run boots. Like shane said, it'll just trap stuff in them. They can do more damage than good.

When's the lift goin on?
