Factory Black Turbo Boot?

I've looked at a few trucks and two of them have black turbo boots. Is this from the factory? DieselSite has black boots with their name printed on and I could not find this on the trucks.

It may not be a big deal, but I do not want to buy a truck that has been modded previously. Help!

The truck is a 2006 and the boot is at the turbo outlet. Here is a picture of one of the trucks.

mine was blue when i got my 06. Id say those are aftermarket. Maybe not a big deal because some of the oem boots blew off or got too oil soaked.

Agreed, it's just oil soaked.

Replacement turbo boots aren't mods, they're maintenance.

Ya ya I know. This truck has zero on the OASIS report, that's why I'm skittish. Meaning to me the truck was a perfect runner with great maintenance or the previous owner didn't have a clue!

Thanks for the responses guys, I'll be looking at it again tomorrow.
