So raining season is almost here. I was wondering if i go offroading in the rain and go in mud pits and in mud basically would i need shock boots?
Would large chunks of mud affect the shocks without shock boots?
Thanks

Mud and other junk tends to get caught in the boots when you have them. Your better off without them.
+1. You should thoroughly clean under your Jeep and inside the frame anyway when you are done mudding. Mud and dirt holds onto moisture that promotes rust.

No boots.....no problem. Shock boots have little drain holes that always get clogged with mud. I learned this the hard way years ago. I haven't ran boots since.

Nope, won't hurt a thing. If you have seal problems with mud you need to buy better shocks :)

Boots serve one purpose... They almost look really cool on mall-crawlers..
