    It is a decent truck, but it is going to be doing a lot of work. You are probably going to want to have something bigger to do a parking lot with. To know if it is a 7700, it will say it under the F150 badge on the back and sides of the truck.

    vehicle weight rating

    open the driver side door and look on the door pillar where the lock strike is. You will find a plate with manufacturer date, serial number and GVW (gross vehicle weight rating) as well as codes for engine, axles, tire sizes, etc.

    IF its a F150 I have a blizzard 760LT for sale. IT would be a great plow for that truck.
