Does anyone make them in green, though? I will be getting new shocks next month and I think green ones (to match the Jeep) would be pretty cool. Red (the color boot that comes with the shocks I will be getting) looks odd on a Jeep where everything else is green or black.
I have boots on my Superlift shocks, but my Jeep doesn't see many mud holes. I like to trail ride. They keep debris out, but it's a good idea to lift the bottom up now and again and check them.
They only keep the big stuff out that wouldn't harm the shock seals, they do allow the fine grit in that can harm the seals. And with a shock boot, that grit won't be washed away by the car wash, hosing the shocks off, wet steets from rain, etc. which can help rinse the grit away from the seal.
Boots serve no functional purpose, at least not in reality, they are only there for show.

boots were accidentally installed on my black wrangler because back then i didn't know any better , i took them off just last year. they were completely full of water and mud, the kicker is, i hadn't been wheeling for about 2 months before that. they held water tight, all that crap inside for months.
they are the worst idea ever.
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president." http://mybroadband.co.za/photos/data...re_cowbell.gif

"The Jeep is a manly device. And a womanly device. An American device. It’s a fitting instrument to transport the free people of a free nation with the respect to which we are entitled and the dignity that we deserve. Okay, we’re a little crazy to have a Jeep for a daily driver. But if we go off our meds, we might wind up in a Prius"-P.J.O'rourke
