      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 .

Snow Plow

Recommended Posts

I'm in the market for a new or used snow plow. I have never owned or bought one before so I am looking for any helpful suggestions or advice on what I should be looking for.

I have to agree with elwood, I have a hiniker and love it. I've had for 9 years with no problems. I would call around and ask what fits your 1/2 ton, I know when I bought mine, I dont know if a plow would fit on my 1/2 ton chevy because they are so low, I put a v-plow on a new chev. 3/4 ton back then and I know a v-plow was way too heavy for a my 2001 chev. 1/2 ton.

A straight blade might work on a 1/2 ton but I would call and make sure. Hiniker makes a great product especially the drive-in forks, makes hook-up real easy.

we had a 8 ft c-plow on a 91 blazer but it had a 2 inch over spring kit in it but I think that with out the spring kit it would of been fine. and the hook up is faster than anything out there.

Know a lot of guys who swear by Western snow plows. Bought a used 8.5 Pro plow with back drag for $1,700 7 years ago and it's worked fine for me. At the time it was only 2 years old so figure it was a fair price. I made $20 with it so far!!! Of course haven't had to pay for snow plowing since and my in laws like it a lot!

Check with some of the Chevrolet / GM dealers let them know what you are looking for. When a truck with a plow is traded in they will usually remove it before selling the truck. I purchased one in perfect condition minus some of the wiring $400 plus $40 for wires and switches. Still have it and working great.
