Default scraped the rear end

I pulled into a steep driveway this afternoon and scraped the rear end on the pavement. I see no damage to the tail pipes or body work. 2013 V6. What'd I likely scrape?

The good thing is that's what it's there for: to protect the evap components underneath.

I was going to buy a flashlight on the way home but forgot. I'll take a look under there tomorrow.

I once drove my Taurus over a curb and then drove 50 miles while the transmission fluid drained out. That was a fun evening and a 50 mile tow. Under $200 for a new pan and a transmission tune. Going to stop and take a look next time that happens, though
