    Where’s the cheapest place I can get a sleeper boot for a 359? 4-States is ~$150 before shipping. Who can beat that?

    Spend the little bit extra and buy the one from Dirks. Again you get what you pay for you price shop on a boot and you’ll get a free shower every time it rains there’s some things you don’t cost cut on that is one of them

    I bought one for my 379 but it’s been a while back but I think Dirks, is where it came from. Fairly thick, and the folds matched up perfectly.

    I put one in a 379 last summer it fit perfect I will put a Dirks in my 359 when I get ready to put it back together theirs has a lip that seals better along the pass through frame I think it’s not much more than the others maybe 30.00 more if I remember correctly

    How did you splice yours together? I assume you spliced it at the bottom and slightly off center?

    Yes at the bottom it works good if you have another person that can hold the boot some what in place then you can just use a rubber hammer and tap it in place

    Frankly I'd spend the money as it's not something you replace every year, usually
