kevlar boot protectors? tell me more, please! tore the rear inboard cv boot about a month ago, waiting on the back-ordered replacement. tore the front inboard about a week ago, still need to order that one. interesting story: i wanted the oem boot ($44) instead of a universal replacement ($18) because the universal looks completely different, and it would be obvious since they're only about 8 inches apart from one another. called around and nobody had it, except the dealer who is closest to me. i avoid them because they p***ed me off when i was shopping for a new renegade. so i worked a long shift and had been up for about 30 hours, stopped in to pick it up. i noticed the oem bag had been opened up and taped back up, but didn't pay any more attention to it. i was checking out the new stuff on the floor and some other aftermarket stuff. i get home and go to open the bag, it's a universal boot inside the oem packaging! i don't open it, haul a$$ back to the stealership and flip out! they swear it's the factory part, but refuse to come out on the floor and compare it to the ones on the renegades. i get my money back and, hopefully cost them a couple customers who were wandering around in there. anyway, i order from another dealer who saya they'd have it in 4 days max. that was 4/7, i called them last week and they say it's backordered until may. i've been doing temporary fixes with black rtv and it seems to hold up ok. i just hate worrying about it so i wanna replace them. sorry to get off-topic, please elaborate on the kevlar boot protectors. i was thinking of fabbing something up to prevent any more tears.
