Orange line near my exhaust pipe????

Just installed a new Cat-back system and it is smoking a bit, i realize it probably will for a day or so but im concerned that it is pretty close to an orange line that im not sure what it is. Could this be brake line or fuel? It is orange underneath but covered with some kind of protective material.

Sounds like the emergency brake cable.

^ that would make sense i completely forgot about that!!! yeah the ebrake cable runs down the center of the jeep and then t's off and a separate cable goes to each drum. thats got to be it, but mine are black i think. might just be dirt/oil/grime from 200,000+ miles of driving the thing tho.
