How serious is this damage? 2001 Pathfinder

I found this damage when I did my first oil change on my recently purchased rust free Texas Pathfinder. It was hidden under the splash guard. It appears to be a subframe component. I didn't figure the guy who previously owned it would still be driving it if it wasn't safe or if it was serious as he is a recently retired F16 pilot with small kids but who knows. Can anyone give me an assessment of this?

That is pretty serious. That cross member ties a lot of components together, including the front lower control arm mounts, the steering rack, and locates the front axle housing. That was a seriously hard hit to bend that up like that. They do not look like much but the steel parts under these trucks are fairly stout.

No shit, how the fuck could it still be aligned with that much damage to the control arm mounting.

There's nothing out there but birds, and dirt, and worms.
