      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 .

new brakes

Recommended Posts

I need new brakes in my 2002 Chevy 2500HD Duramax. The original pads lasted 120,000 miles with some large towing. Any recommendations on pads? It is 4 wheel disk. Anything special with the install or should I bring it in somewhere. Any recommendations there?

I've done all of my own brake jobs as long as they're disc brakes. It's a fairly easy task that could cost a fortune if you take it in to the shop (labor).

I usually do rotors and pads together. But that was on cars. 4x4 truck rotors are far more expensive.

My last couple changes I've gone with ceramic pads. Trucks may be different. Especially in the case of HD trucks.

I would go with OEM and the dealer Roofer if you expect to get that again grin

If you have that many miles on the originals than go with O.E.

A little warning if you plan on doing it yourself. They use loc-tite on all the caliper bolts. You will get a workout removing them. I would also suggest using quality tools for these as well.

Found out the rear calipers require a tool I don't have or have access to. Luckily a friend's dad is a GM diesel mechanic and has tools. He will be doing my brakes for me. I tow heavy loads and will feel better having a pro do the job.

I got OE pads and some aftermarket rotors from the GM dealer. The GM rear rotors are $400 a piece!! The aftermarket's are only $150. The dealer said that they don't even use the GM ones because they are so expensive. I can see why. If anyone seen that price on a bill, they would flip!

Anyways, new pads and rotors gonna be about $750. Not bad for 120,000 miles and such a heavy duty truck.

Our F550 that my Dad drives for work has all disk brakes. The last time he had a brake job (not long ago...they only last about 50,000 or less) it was $1200 just for the rear brakes and rotors installed.

    • The building codes are really very important in order to keep the property safe. We need to upgrade the house acoording to these building codes.
    • And Del says ya can eat as many as ya want now!!!     
    • great cheap treat those smoked eggs.  
    • I actually prefer Honeycrisp, because of the sweet/tart flavor. Sweet tango ain't bad either. The others get TOO mushy and seem to lose flavor. But, it's a personal preference. Someone'll whine about there are better baking apples.  Made my apple roast the other day with the Honeycrisp, but put it in the crockpot instead of the oven. Came up with this 6-7 yrs ago.  And there's even a picture of it, since words give you so much difficulty, leech.            Reb's  Apple- pork roast


        One boneless 2-3 lb Pork Butt Roast Two cups  Fresh Apple Cider Rosemary Seasoned salt Black pepper to taste 4 oz Cinnamon Apple Sauce (These are the “Snak Pak” size cups) One  large Yellow Onion, sliced thin              Marinate the roast in the cider in a Zip-Loc bag, in the fridge, for 6-8 hours, turning frequently. Place roast in a greased baking dish, with some of the marinade. Sprinkle liberally with seasonings and lightly with the Rosemary.  Place thin layer of onions on top. Pour apple sauce over top. Put in a 300* oven for 45 mns to one hour, uncovered.  Cover and cook  for30- 45 mns- longer or until meat thermometer registers 155-160*. Do not overcook. Let sit covered for 15 minutes before slicing. Enjoy!  
    • @RebelSS, do you recommend any specific type of apples?
    • I forgot to put in the segment winners Spring        Juneau4 Summer     Henry's Heroes Playoff        BlackLundProV
    • Well quit hijacking the thread!!! we'll find someone serious sooner or later!
    • They can explain that over and over and I’m not buying it. I changed my ducer to the 12 like my 18. 
    • So your trying to work out the picture problem-right?
