get a replacement upper Ball Joint boot to replace the one that split, the only thing I can think of at this point is to buy the cheapest Ball Joint available and use that boot. I'm suprised no company makes poly boots for the Jeep. Anyone ever find a close replacment poly boot to replace a split boot? Thanks

I've ordered Energy suspension #9.13130R and 9.13119G. They will be too "tall" but I think I will be able to cut them down from the large opening end to fit. Will update.

I know 4 wheel parts has em' (energy suspension) . When I had the front end rebuilt tie rods, b-joints they put those on at my request . But...... I think the factory rubber boots last longer cause they are already starting to crack .

None of them appear to be part specific for the "Jeep." I wrote down a couple of sizes (9.13132G and b9.13126R) that appear to be the same shape. My order will arrive Monday with the boots I had previously ordered (that I know I will have to trim down shorter) that I think should work. Will advise. I called ES and they confirmed they don't make BJ boots for the Jeep.
Thanks for the reply.

I started a new thread on my repair so those searching about split boots could find a "fix"
