JD 990 risk of damage

This is a request for more information - today I went to a
different JD dealer, closed of course. He had a 990 and a 5105
outside. What worries me about the 990 is the location of the
power steering cylinder and the hydaulic lines. They look like
they were put where they could easily be damaged by brush,
stumps, or rocks. I don't believe there is a skidplate option, and
I don't see how I could make one with thick plywood which
would do the job. In another way, the 990 would be good for
me because I can set the rear wheels out to about 78 inches,
with ag tires and two-piece rims. This would be a lower center
of gravity than a 5105. I have a side hill I have to run across,
and have not tipped my 8N but it has cast wheel weights plus
filled tires.
