[V8] Dirt and Dirt

I don't know how you could hurt a boot just by driving on a dirt road. They are
pretty well covered up. If by "dirt road" you mean bashing through corn fields
or something - then the boots will be the least of your problems...

fyi most light and medium duty 4WD trucks and SUVs (like the ranger for example)
have boots and they last a long time. Some even have them on the rear.
You would have to blast into a big sagebrush or something and then take a lucky
hit to the boot.

However, I stay off the dirt whenever possible just to keep the dust out of the
A/C system and upholstery.
