Got the same problem and was wondering how difficult it was as well. I put some black rtv on mine then it cracked further down.
Is this like a cv joint boot in that if it's not fixed the joint loses grease and the joint goes bad?

Pretty sure the drive and the boot for both the 1500 and 1600 are the same.

I will be replacing my boot when I take the wheels off to be polished.

Will lube the swing arm and drive shaft etc. also.

Just turned the crack out of sight... I'm lazy, I know... would be better to replace it
Because if I can't see it, the dirt can't see it either :).

I think I would at least wrap some Gorilla tape around it till I could get the work done. While not as bad as a CV joint, it can't be good to have dirt rattling around in there.
