    I just bought an f350, it has low mileage, high engine hours,
    anyone know of what i could check to see if it was used for plowing?
    it does have a aux box.

    Look for rub marks on the frame where the mount would go, look to see if the plastic air dam is notched or removed.

    Interior smells like a$$,
    Missing a mirror,
    Quarter panel is caved in,
    Cigarette burns at top drivers window weather stripping,
    Coffee stains on floor,
    Hole in dash from where controller was mounted,
    Dents in rear bumber,
    A long scrape along the side of truck body,
    There is a blue light on BackRack,
    Underside mounted spare tire is full of salt,
    Truck bed floor is wavy between supports (indication a vbox salter was mounted),

    Johnny,

    Thats not from plowing snow. Thats from plowing something else in the off season or between events.
