      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Tailgate on 2004 Silverado not latching very well UPDATE

Recommended Posts

I've been spraying where the rods connect by the handle and one side has loosened up but the other side is still hanging up. Should I keep spraying and working it or do I dare take the bolts off on the box side of the tailgate. I leary to do the latter since I don't want to drop any parts inside the tailgate.

Mine did the same thing all you have to do is take the plastic cap off the tailgate and spray some WD40 on the mechanisms and it should be good to go you might have to just keep respraying and opening and shutting it. Mine would not latch and I would just keep slamming to closed and it would sometimes latch is that what yours is doing?

I took the handle off and really lubed and worked it and put it back on. Works very well now. When putting the cap back on I snapped the two tabs on top. mad Anyone know where I can get one cheap?

I think a whole new unit is about $45 at the dealer. If the tabs you are talking about are the ones holding the rods to the latch, I'll bet you can pick them up pretty cheap at the dealer too.

Yeah I can't tell a difference works perfect. You might want to consider buying the Bully lock kit and it comes with a new one made for the lock. I just got one for my new truck for 19 bucks plus shipping. I can give you the seller if you want I dont think I can post it on here but I can send it to your email.
