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.
