Drive Shaft Boot?

Recently my driveshaft boot came apart while going down the road.

Any suggestions on the best place to get a replacement or is this a dealer only thing? Does the dealer sell just the boot as a separate item?

Any ideas on what could be substituted for it? A trimmed down shock boot maybe?

All the local junk yards won't sell them individually away from a drive shaft itself.

Searched and searched yesterday, then was giving Google a shot after posting this and found a part number, FOF81Z-4421-BA, which reportedly is only about $30 at the dealer. Not as bad as I feared.
