Default What did I break?

So a little bit ago my wife decided we needed concrete blocks from a silo that was knocked down. So we loaded up the car and took off, no problem. On my way home I hit railroad tracks and bottomed out. I can see that I tore what appears to be sheet metal on the bottom, but I have no idea what the part would be called to even replace it. Sorry if the pictures aren't great:






So, what did I break? Thanks!

Looks like the heat shield between the gas tank and the exhaust.

Yep it is just a heat/rock shield, mine looked like that too first time I saw it on a lift. Had a few customers come into shop with XB's with similar damage so it must be pretty common, I bent mine and their shields back without issue.
