      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 .

Spray on bed liner

Recommended Posts

What should a guy expect to pay for a spray on bed liner? Just bought an '06 F150 6.5' box. Any recommendations for brands?

I tried searching the forum, but came up empty handed.

I thought I heard good things about lineX, but this being my first real truck, I hadn't really paid attention. $325 sounds pretty reasonable.

It has a drop in. What I don't like about it is how the portable, and everything else in there slides around while I drive. If I stop, I hear it hit the front, accel, and it hits the tail gate. Not fun, and not doing much good for the gear

The last one i had was on a 2001 Ram 2500. It was put in by th dealership and i think it was line X or something. I had it go over the top rail and that saved a lot of paint scratching on the truck.

I also had a drop in and never liked that one. Some times it fluttered in the back, other times it scraped paint from moving it and most of all debris kept getting under it and molding.

Stick with a good brand of spray on for protection and cleanliness.

I think they charged me like $450 back in '01 from the dealership, so $325 seems like a deal to have someone else put it on.

I put Line-X in in '05 for $350 I think. I've hauled sleds with carbide scags, concrete debris, scrap metal and its never chipped, peeled, or gouged! Definitely recommend it. Also heard good things with Rhino.

Called LineX this afternoon. $499 to spray it. Earlier today, I asked the dealership if they would get me a quote from their guy. $500 is a little too rich for my blood at the moment. We'll see what they come up with. I probably should have worked that into the deal. Oh well, lesson learned...

I just have the thick rubber Ford mat in mine. Nothing slides on it, it's quiet and lots less money. Usually by the time I get rid of them the inside of the box doesn't look too bad. The floor seems to take the worst of it.

I would check out Herculiner. It's a do it your self Kit, but it is way better than those cheap walmart ones. I got mine for $80 a gallon and I was very happy with how it turned out.

I got my Line X sprayed over the rails 5 yrs ago when I got my truck. I don't recall the cost (under $500 I think), but it has been well worth it. I've had rock, firewood, cement blocks, dirt etc. back there and it has held up great.
