Working on my 5105, the fuel line runs under the tractor and of course behind the dash where the fire was. Is it worth trying to find some kind of protector to protect the bottom so it doesn't get snagged? Maybe the plastic wire harness cover stuff? It's just bulk fuel line, so it is cheap, but obviously there's an element of danger and inconvenience there.

Looking online, most of what I found were heat shields to protect against vapor lock in gas engines. (Mine is diesel, of course)

There are spots on the fuel lines of my JD 6415 that have the split loom for protection against abrasion.
You buy for a lot less than JD sells it for, and indifferent materials. I would pick whatever is the most wear resistant
