Intercooler Boots Replacement!

Title basically says it all. My truck has over 200k miles. With no major mods, still at stock boost. How long should I go before replacing all the Engine Boots and Intercooler Boots. I took them off yesterday and cleaned them, as well as the Intercooler Tubes. They are kinda flimsy, not firm. I've never replaced them, so I really don't know how they are supposed to feel.

I do get a gut feeling, that I best just replace them, and don't worry about it.

Would like some advice. Should I replace all them? And How often should I replace them? In Stock form.

Thanks guys.
