Highway pegs

I am thinking Highway Pegs would be nice for my 2012 rt but all the pictures I see look like they are mounted right in front of the large blast furnace that can am put on the R/H side. My foot gets so hot now that I can't stand it. Anyone have any words of wisdom on how to get rid of the heat or different mounting on the pegs. About to take a 3K mi. trip and need some comfort!What have you guys done?

Ur rite about heat with foot on foot board...I think the curve at that point sucks the heat into that area...if I rest my foot on black water defector...it does get relief from the heat

Got pegs from Lamonsters, eliminated heat issue. Moves foot forward and higher, no heat around foot.

Don't know, didn't block mine off, figured it's there for a reason. If foot gets warm just move to highway peg problem solved

Yup, watched the video on highway pegs and they covered the removal of the lower plastic shield when installing block off plate.
