stacks with toolbox or guard

Im trying to come up with some ideas to make a guard or incorporate a toolbox with my stacks. I would like to make something so that I can haul dirtbikes easier because with the stacks now they will melt my tires. So I was thinking of making some type of guard for when Im hauling stuff in my bed to protect it from catching on fire, but also for when Im hauling bikes. So maybe a guard with bike chocks built into it or something. Any ideas? Here are some pics of a rack made to hold a box between the stacks..

any ideas guys? Im thinking maybe something like the first pic except it wouldn't come out as far and then box it in with mesh. That way the pipe could still get airflow and not get too hot.

I just have a regular toolbox on mine. Works pretty well. There are some guards that grand rock and others sell. They are pretty simple. Basicly just a few half circles with some sheet metal over top. It would be pretty easy to fab up.

You could do that with some expanded sheet as well.

Yea I was thinking of something like that, but I figured the exhaust would get hotter since its enclosed.
