Difference between Steering Gear and Front Suspension Skid-plates?

I looked at the ORP package details online, and they list a Steering Gear Skid-plate and a Front Suspension Skid-plate. I searched online for the specific parts, and I only found the Front Suspension skid-plate. What exactly is the Steering Gear Skid-plate and what does it look like?

I only saw 3 skid plates under my truck... front suspension plate, transfer case plate, and gas tank plate.

Okay, my research has led me to believe that FCA failed to correct their literature. I believe the steering group skid-plate is the same as the front suspension skid-plate, and that they neglected to remove one of the descriptions from the ORP details, thus leading me to believe there are supposed to be 4 skid-plates instead of the actual 3.

See the following, old discussion thread:

Maybe RAM Cares can shed some light on this topic?

I believe you have figured it out. There are only 3 skid plates total.

I just got a bighorn no skid plates at all, the front two just bolt on I believe but having trouble finding out what hardware is needed to install the fuel tank skid plate

Take a bolt off of one of the other skid plates and find a good Fasterner company and see if they can help you match it.

I also need the fastener that clips in the frame on the driver's side frame
