Bent oil pan skid. Should I worry about structural damage?

Untitled | anthony zanegin | Flickr


So I bent my oil pan skid and from the front you can see the passenger side is pushed up. The hit was right on the corner bend. Keep in mind this is an aluminum skid so I expected it to bend more.

Question is this - should I worry about the x-member it bolts to getting bent? It was a good hit but not the worst I’ve had wheeling. Then again that engine cross member is likely beefy enough for such a hit.

Measuring LCA to ground I don’t see anything off, really.

Thoughts?

Na bro youre good!! Mine looks like a budweiser can that was crushed and brought back. What i will say is be careful with the bolts. The dealer and others like to use an impact and that mixed with the bends not making it align right will eventually fatigue the bolts and cause them to break.
