      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 .

Quick ballpark cost question...

Recommended Posts

How much (ballpark) to rebuild a 2000 Yukon 4x4 tranny? Or (ballpark) how much for a used one to be installed?

Thanks for any thoughts, just need to decide if it is worth it for family member. Otherwise in good shape truck.

Used, with fluids/stuff, tax, depending on the labor rate also, but I would suspect around $1500-$2000. Could be high depending where and who they get the used trans from and their mark-up and miles on the used unit.

Good luck!

Thanks Shack. I see you are 37 minutes from Mille Lacs smile Do you have any advice if this tranny blew in Aitkin? I believe they are towing to the GM dealership right now in Aikin.

Thanks!

All I can say is get a diag. done first at the dealer. If a trans replacement is need and you are going the used route, you can save your self the mark up cost, maybe tax and find a good unit on-line your self. The used unit price you will get quoted on-line should include shipping costs. Make sure you tell them where it is going and not your current location. You can tell the used parts on-line vendor (I always call the 1-800#) the name of the dealer it is going to. Could lead to maybe some better pricing??

If the trans needs to be replaced, get a break down estimate of parts, labor, tax and shop supplies. The labor should not change if you supply the used trans your self.

Let us know what the finding are.

Thanks tons Shack! The good news is it seems like it just the fuel pump that went... ha! Not sure how they got "tranny" blew if it was just a fuel pump, but they are not even as mechanically inclined as me, and I don't know Jack!!!! smile

But I now have more knowledge for my 98 k1500 should the tranny ever go, and will take your advice. Hopefully it won't but better to be prepared, huh?

Thanks much for the quick answers!
