      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 .

How do Mud Tires perform on greasy trails?

Recommended Posts

I will be the first to admit I try to avoid places where 4-wheel drive is required but with the rains up north I'm a bit nervous.

The dirt trail I drive turns very greasy when its wet. Not deep mud, just the slippery stuff that is even difficult to walk on. Last year my tires were coated in mud and the back of the PU kept trying to slide off the trail. This was at a slow speed, did not want to go fast enough to try and throw the mud from the BFG A/T tires.

This year I have new mud tires. how should I expect them to perform in this greasy mud? I don't want to have to drive fast and tear up the trail. Does more weight in the the truck bed help keep things driving straight and not sliding?

Nothing more greasy then a county road come Spring time in SD. Slick as snot and dries like cement.

If it were a field I say keep your speed up. On a road you'll need to crawl or you'll be in the ditch.

As far as tires deep lugs will help. Tires chains are even better.

The only thing that will keep tire tread "clean" is spinning the tires. Otherwise even deep lugged mud tires will cake up if they cannot clean out.

Go slow but don't be afraid to spin the tires if they pack up. I don't mean fly down the trail, but juice the throttle quick to give them a little spin.

The mud tires should work great. Don't be afraid to use the throttle a little. They will also work great in deep snow but tend to be all thumbs when it comes to ice traction.
