Ok. I bought a replacement boot from Advance Auto that came with zip ties. Pulled the tie rod end off with no issues, it just came right apart without issues. Cut the old boot off with a roto-zip and a small cutting wheel. Put the new boot on, installed the zip ties. Counted the threads on the tie rod end and bolted it back up. Piece of cake! Took about an hour and a half from the time I got out the jack until it was back on the ground. Got my fingers crossed!! Hope this solves the problem.

Glad to hear it went well, in the near future I'd still consider an alignment if you have not had one in a while, just a partially off alignment can ruin your tires in no time, I know from experience, I did the same as you, counted the turns, and still I ended up with it off a bit, enough ti cause irregular wear on my tires, which voided the warranty on them..
