What areas are prone to rust on a SD?

I am not sure if this is the right area to post this in, but here it goes. I am looking at buying a 02 F350 supercab long box dually. What areas should I look at to see if it has any rusting issues? The current owner said he had the bottom of both front doors redone last year, I know the owner of the body shop he took it to and they do very good work. Besides the doors are there any other areas?

Thanks
Paul

as well as the inside of the front doors on the bottom in the inside, they will start from the inside and work its way to exterior.

I had the bottoms of all my doors redone, cab corners, i just noticed a small bubble around back fenderwell, these are the most common places.

Check the Oil Pan out really well as others have said.

Re: What areas are prone to rust on a SD?

The first thing I do on a new truck is grab a pail of roofing tar, remove the wheels and fill the fenderwell lips until they are level with tar. That way dirt, mud and moisture can't sit there. Then I spray the inside of the fenderwells with a rustproofer and then tar them too. Result: no fenderwell rust. The fenderwells on my truck are like new, in spite of it being 10 years old.

I've never seen rust in the doors. I'll check mine the next time I have to door panels off.

All Ford doors rust on the inside at the bottom. They rust from the inside out.
