    Looks like it's had a hard life.

    It's been welded on, quick paint job over the rust. Missing the pump cover. It may function fine but don't pay a lot for it.

    Works good to much for his truck he wants to trade for my 7.5 mid weight ultra mount with a bad cilender and cuting edge

    To answer your question, Boss Plows are good plows. Just like anything else, it all depends on what kind of maintenance it had. They have a very simple design and are simple to work on. It shoudl say if its an RT2 or an RT3 somewhere on it. Thats the model. If it has a toggle switch on the light tower, it has SmartHitch.
    If you have the same truck as he does and the wiring and truck side mount will work on yours, I say go for it.

    BTW, how can that be too much plow for a Superduty?

    Given the obvious welding to the plow I wonder if this was an earlier boxed in model that rusted out. If so, the integrity of the plow is suspect. Not to mention the plow is "pretty tweaked". Be carefull! Also have someone take it on and off the existing truck first. With that hitch design not always so easy.
