      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 .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Hubs for '85 Silverado

Recommended Posts

I haven't been driving it much at all for the last several years, basically using it for runs to the dump and hauling firewood, but I'm putting my old Chevy Silverado 4x4 back in shape for regular work. It's a 1985.

The 4x4 remains functional but has been grinding and scraping. I'm anticipating new hubs.

In your opinion, tell me which brand of replacement hubs are the best combination of functionality and price. Price is a big consideration on this.

And I've never replaced 4x4 hubs before. I've got the Chilton's manual for the vehicle and have done a lot of light/medium service on a lot of cars/trucks over the years. This seems like not such a tough job to replace them, but how tough is it really?

Thanks in advance for the help, fellas!

Real easy, I put a set of Warn manual locking in my 1990 full size Blazer to replace the automatic hubs I had for durability. They have never failed me and I just sold the vehicle after 19 years frown.

With that being said I have heard Warn hubs sometimes wont work on the 80's models as sometimes they are a bit longer than the origanals and the locking ring wont go on

I have heard SuperWinch makes a good hub and are closer to the specs and no one seems to be having problems with them but I dont know who caries them.

Warn seems to be what the auto stores carry.

MileMarkers are good hubs as is Warns. Have you checked the boneyards for stock replacements?
