      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 .

a weight thing more than anything else.

I agree I don't think these prove anything, Same gearing, weight tire sizes, traction....on and on. And the real bottom line is who cares anyway? If a certain truck fits your needs you buy it.

No real point at all! smile

I thought it was just a cool "raw power", (Tim Allen) Huh! Huh! Huh! or Oh! Oh! Oh! kind of video grin

Heck, you hook up 2 Powerstrokes together, on is going to fail or get pulled. You hook 2 Cummins together, one is going to fail or get pulled.

I am sure these truck are stock minus a tunner wink. It could of went either way until that hick-up occured on the Cummins, even then the Ram almost pulled'er back.

Lots of vid's on you- tube!

Ya, a lot of junk video's I have found grin. Non-show the whole pull all the way threw or they are horribly shot out in the front street with daddy's trucks and kids that do not know what they are doing grin

This one by no means was a controlled test, but at least the footage was clear, it was at a track/event, looks like adults or at least the owners of the trucks and you get to see the whole pull, till the end. wink

Like I said, if you find something cool, put it on up! I love these videos, no matter who wins! smile

Nice vid Valv. they had that powerstuck loaded with people, I wonder if the Dodge was a 4 door loaded with people? Who knows if either of these were stock for stock, or both trucks could of been chipped,ect.....

I knew Valv would find one grin

I had to do it.... grin

Actually there are so many videos of any combination and outcome it's tough to decide which one to post.

I actually like the ones with same brand but different model (like F350 vs F450 etc).

I agree with Shackbash, I really think it's not the most intelligent way to show what a vehicle is capable.

Towing capacity is related to many factors, showing it in a test is very tough, even for a magazine or TV.

Yeah these redneck tug of war does not prove anything. It may prove the owner of the truck had more grip or horsepower than the other. Thats all it really proves. But I still give it up for Cummins because their motors are rated to last 500,000 miles or more while the Duramax and Powerstroke are around 250,000. Cummins straight six turbos last a long time because straight six motors have less problems with harmonic balancing like v motors. Look at Toyota Supra turbo charged straight 6 motors, they can do high 700-800 horsepower with the stock block. Start with a good platform and it all falls in right.

The real test is to line em up with a trailer loaded down and have a good 0-60-0 race. Thats what I like to know about. Not much fun going fast when you smash into whatever is in front of you! wink

    • I was sleeping in the topper of my truck two weeks ago and it was *thump....... thump........thumpity thumpity* all night long.  Maybe it's the yearlings just figuring stuff out and finding themselves? Young males thinking they are all that?
    • This looks promising.  Usually have the little guys but a little more age in these two. 
    • I’ve heard drumming deep into the summer when I was out trout fishing. I thought that was a little odd. It’s one of the nicest sounds to come out of the woods though, so if they do it year round, I’ll take it!
    • Fall colors are now peaking in far northwestern Wisconsin and throughout the central part of the state including the Door County area, according to the Department of Tourism's Fall Color Report. Fall colors are now past peak in about a dozen north central counties and leaves are dropping rapidlyFall colors are now peaking in Door County. Photo from Oct. 19 from atop "Old Baldy" sand dune at Whtiefish Dunes State Park.Photo Credit: DNRMuch needed rain in the last week finally spurred on the fall Lake Michigan tributary salmon runs. The chinook spawn is going strong, with a variety of baits and methods seeing success. The chinook spawn is in full swing along Door County with salmon spotted in most marinas and in many area creeks. In the Kewaunee harbor, salmon can be seen jumping regularly and have been stacking up in corners in force and numbers, and anglers are having success with both spoons and crankbaits. Fish have been so thick at times that anglers have foul-hooked more than they have had strike. The salmon spawn is also in full force in the East and West Twin, Manitowoc, Branch and Ahnapee rivers. Chinook salmon are the most common catch but a few coho are also being caught. In southern tributaries, those fishing the Sheboygan River reported most of the success from chinook and coho salmon along with a few brown trout. At Sauk Creek a few chinook were landed on flies and spoons. On the Root River were chinook the majority of anglers targeting and seeing success upstream of the steelhead facility and fishing with egg flies. .
    • $2,750 it's in darn good condition as well.
    • How much for the old one?
    • Im from N.D. and guided for many yrs from Sask to Texas. And why anyone would go to N.D and hunt  waterfowl is a mystery to me. Canada has the best waterfowl hunting  I have ever seen. You only have to drive  500 miles more. There is no posted land and no hunters. Its a waterfowlers dream.   We averaged 69 Geese a day for 15 yrs plus I never counted the  Ducks  in the decoys in the mornings. In the evening clients would sit at a slough and shoot ducks while I found a field to hunt geese in the next morning.   Pretty good chance you would shoot more bird in one day than in N.D. in a week.
    • Fish thanks for the heads up, We have it planned for next week so at least I'll Miss the MEA weekend yahoos.
    • any rub on it??   I got to try this!!
    • Picked up a new to me sled with only a 122 miles on it!  It's the same sled I already have Arctic Cat Panther 570 fan, which I will only use since I ice fish more then trail ride. Things in perfect shape the guy used it like 4 times with his family and has 120 compression on both sides and is Mint!  Not as pretty as the old Black and red one which has 3165 miles on it but just to nice to pass up. Old ones going on C/list now.
