Liberty 2008 - rubber around the shaft - problem

I have a 2008 liberty, the rear drive shaft had a rubber boot around it which was broken a few days ago. I'm looking for that part here in Europe but no chance. Instead of that jeep sellers suggest me to buy a new shaft with rubber for 400 euro = $600

Is anybody who can give me some hint where can I buy new or used rubber in the US?

Thank you in advance

I Checked the Official Parts Manual and it only list 2 parts, the Entire Drive Shaft and the Bolts that hold it to the Transfer Case and to the Rear Axle. So it appears that you will need to replace the entire Drive Shaft. I would check a junkyard first to see if you can just unbolt the Drive Shaft and it should just drop out. Should be real easy to do.

The OEM rear driveshaft is not servicable so you must replace the whole driveshaft as one unit.Heck you can not replace the u-joints,you must replace the whole driveshaft if you get a bad u-joint.

And no it's not a bad design as almost every vehicle(not just Chrysler) made today have non-servicable driveshafts till you get into the 3/4+ trucks.
