I'm sure I'm not the only one that has a stuffed boot.. I have tried repairing it but it ain't happening..

Anyone tried and succeeded with one from another vehicle or found a suitable aftermarket one..

Any help would be appreciated..

I have used boots from Autobarn (one for the gear stick & one for the transfer lever). These are the ones that come with a rubber boot and a metal plate that sits around the edge of the boot,

Aftermarket ones from supacrap or autobarn are the go
Finding genuine 2nd hand are hard to get and sell for a bit

I will see if I can find a Ford one, or one that fits before I come down Shark, it will most likely cost me nothing so its yours if I can grab one, that's if you can wait that long.

Thanks chops that would be awesome.. The problem is when you do a body lift they don't fit properly.. I had a flawless one but stuffed once the body lift went it.. Just want something that's gonna block the noise and heat out and still be flexible..

The original MQ boots are cheap, nasty, hard plasticy things that just crack up with age. I went to the wreckers and found most of the MQs had cracked boots, but did find one good one - $10. Also found an MQ where they had just put a much larger boot, looks like from a small truck, over the top of the stuffed one. This is the one I am using now.

It is made of much thicker and softer rubber. It also has a good grip on the gear lever since the hole is not too big. So that means I don't have to worry abut fastening it tight to the floor, or even bother squeezing it under the carpet. I just slide it down far enough so the concertina pressure pushes it hard against the carpet and makes a good seal.

So I suggest going to a truck wrecker and see what you can find. I paid $10 for mine.

Thanks for the great idea's fella's..
I'm still gonna go to the local pick a part and see if I can pick one up.. Doing all that work sound proofing is pointless with the stuffed boots..

How about getting one of those leather ones. Leave the rubber boot in place to keep out most of the dust and noise, and the leather one would take over where the rubber is split, and also give it a stylish look.

What I mean is put the leather one over the top of the rubber one.

I had same problem when I went through muddy water and got the exaust wet. Steam and burndirt smell filled the cab. Went to autobarn and picked up autotech one with elastic bottom and pull cord top. I left the old on in place and suck elastic over the bottom, tied off top and problem was fixed. If i remember it only cost me 15 bucks. It is blue but who gives a s**t.
