They are $69 at arrowhead....There's always some on EBay.
We made our own back during the winter down time. Used 1X1 square stock, 1 inch wide flat stock, and the factory pegs which were left over when we mounted the cleated pegs.

If you already have a skid plate it can be as easy as finding a piece of square stock and bolting it up to the u-bolt for the skid plate.

I got all creative and mounted my passenger pegs to the ends by cutting out 2 sides of the square to make a notch and took one of the pieces that I cut out and epoxied them to the opening.

Now the pegs can be folded back if they get hit or if you just need to.

Total cost was $4 for the aluminum, $0.85 for the epoxy, and a little bit of bedliner spray.

Highway Pegs

There is a guy on EBAY who is out of Mayfield Kentucky who makes a nice set of bars with folding pegs. I got a set for my 2008 for $79.95 plus shipping. They are very comfortable and well made. They include a nice machined block to mount them on the front down tube. Well worth the money. griffy
