Pic Request Prop shaft heat shield WJ 4.0

It seems that the heat shield protecting the front of the prop shaft on my jeep fell off. Can anyone take a pic of this for me, so I can get an idea of how to fix the problem. Second question the lack of a heat shield has melted the boot, is there a 2 piece replacement

Thoughts?

I know it was there, I can see where the welds broke off the exhaust pipes

Back from the dead, It is the heat shield on the down pipe, which protects the front Prop shaft boot. Somehow my heat shield broke off, and it has left me with the front CV boot completely melted, I went to jeep, and they said the only fix would be to replace the whole prop shaft, and it is a jeep only part, is this correct? They wanted nearly $500 just for the part, there has got to me another source?

Here ya go:

Just need to know which T-case setup you have, and you're golden.

I would recommend that you replace the entire axle and not just the boot as well. If the boot has torn/cracked/melted and the grease inside has leaked out that means the CV joint inside the boot has been operating without proper lubrication. Most CV axles can go bad due to lack of lubrication in around 5 hours driving time.

He is looking for the driveshaft, not an axle shaft.

Gotcha, he mentioned front shaft and I assumed axle shaft.
