      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 .

Seems like an expensive point! Probably 8 new tires, and maybe even a tranny as well.

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

The real test is put max weight each vehicle can handle then let em rip. Better have a thicker cable. Thats if you realywant to be real and find out.

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

    •  Following Monday's snow we hit the Reservoir Trail out of Twig Wed afternoon.  Freshly groomed and what a sweet ride it was but too short  More snow in the forecast.   Ride When and What You Can. Going out Fri night.
    • "A little too fast for a sled not completely broke in yet any way"  For what the new POO Axys or the 2003 Cat? Very low miles on an old sled is good but sitting idle for years is no good. Dirty carbs and or rust on the bearings was the Cats downfall.
    •  Most riders are going to cross a driveway in the ROW as if it were any other crossing.  Start putting up barricades or berms to impede crossing the the ROW and heads will butt.  Point is you may have paved the driveway onto the ROW and feel some ownership but the law says you don't control it.   I see it all the time where a landowner blocks of the ROW.   The local club might contact you or Law Enforcement will to inform you to remove the barrier.  
    • I have two huge bags of shelled pecans and walnuts from Xmas that won't be used anytime soon and was wondering if I can feed these to birds and what species of birds would eat them
    • Well, it’s been a few more days. Cardinals are eating it, but they don’t seem to prefer it. Must be a lower quality seed, perhaps? I’m only getting 1 or 2 cardinals now, as opposed to the 10 to 12 I was getting before. Also not getting the sunset feeding frenzy anymore. The redpolls love it though. Anyway, do you guys do anything to help prevent sunflower shell messes, or do anything to clean them up, or do you just deal with the mess?
    • I noticed lately most tire shops have and use torque wrenches instead of just relying on impacts like they used to. Probably a liability thing. Keep in mind a lot of shops employ high school kids part time which is good because they know everything at that age. I had a shop years back put on lugs so tight it ruined the rims and lug nuts. Breaker bar is also a handy tool as well as the BFH
    • Congrats huckfin!!! It was a crashfest! Now to the real racing.
    •   It may be that they knew the folks up there needed a little extra help because they couldn't get the Righty tighty-Lefty loosey deal down. So, they had to make special trucks just for the Yukon Territory?  
    • Couple things to keep in mind. Various wheels will require varying torque settings and it should be ON the wheel, or in the owners manual. If you are in a shop make a point of TELLING them what torque settings you want used on your tires/wheels. And of course big difference if you have steel or cast aluminum wheels.  Years back, believe it or no, some Dodge trucks would tighten turning LEFT and then on the other side they would tighten turning RIGHT!  You need not ask me how I know this but it all took place in the middle of the Yukon Territory.
