Helping my dad with a boot replacement on his 08. I have the axle removed from the truck, but how do you slide the boot over everything? The oem boots we have are not as flexible. Do the ends come apart?

Usually there's a c-clip inside that you have to hammer the joint over. Put the shaft in a vise and then hold the joint end in one hand and hit the top side with a small sledge. Should pop off with a few whacks

Have to disassemble drive shaft.

You should disassemble so you can clean all the parts. Failed CV boot will allow dirt, grit, etc inside which will eventually cause a future joint failure.

After cleaning, slide new boot on, reassemble, pack with grease, clip boot in place.
