Help Me Confirm if I'm Missing A Tie Rod Boot

Can somebody confirm if I'm missing a boot on my new Passenger Side Tie Rod End? I'm a novice DIYer when it comes to replacing my Tie Rods and
before I begin to dismantle the existing TieRods, I want to see if I need to ship this "new" tie rod end back to the store for a refund.


By the way, I have a 2008 Ford F250 6.4L King Ranch






This is what I got shipped to me:




This is what my truck currently has on it:




And this is what I think a "New" Passenger Tie Rod End should look like:

u could probably re use the old one or get one from ford if u don't want to hassle with a return ?
I would measure first at the area where the boot will seat to make sure it's the same as OEM

Cool Thanks... I thought I was going crazy looking at this part and
thinking "how is this going to fit" and "something doesn't look right".

So yeah, missing boot.. This baby is going back for a refund.
