A pre-emptive boot change??

Wondering what your thoughts are on doing a boot change out even though Im not reeley having issues yet with mine. Just seems like maybe a simple cheap thing to do.
They are showing signs of time. But like I said they have yet to fail.
I was lookin at RIFRAFF boots do you have a different suggestion?

I think its a good idea. I've done the blue one on hot side out of turbo twice and keep the better of the two on truck along with extra clamps. I would recommend at least keeping spare boot and clamp with you. I know you have a long trip coming up. Good luck and enjoy trip.

It's cheap insurance and the Riff Raff boots are high quality. If there is any doubt, get the set from RR and put the old ones in your truck as spares in case something happens.
