What do i look for a on a 92 w-250 dodge truck thats plowed its whole life? (other than rust)
I expect increased front suspension wear and possibly a cracked frame at the steering box from the extra weight.  Anything else I should look for when buying a long term plow truck?

I've never had a plow truck before, only tow trucks

I'd be more concerned with frame rust than anything.  Especially around the suspension mounting points and in the lip of the frame in places around the axles.  If the frame is good then the next thing I would worry about is the transmission as they live a very hard life.

The cab body mounts also take a beating if they were used hard.  Frame rust is a big one also.
Transmission is definitely a concern.
