      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 .

The factory ones, because they are quiet and last along time. But thats probably not the answer you were looking for wink

X2 or why not just rip it all off and run straight pipes as long as you're willing to ruin a good exhaust system.

had duels on a 96 1/2 ton short box regular cab chevy, straight pipes from the cats back to 45 deg 3" tips and it was loud and crackled very nice. i was young (19) and it was great unless you were trying to be stealthy, but on long trips it got kinda annoying listening to the loud rumble the whole way. oh yeah and i got pulled over plenty of times for them being to loud. just some stuff to think about.

How old are you?

I don't think age really is the issue. It sounds to me as if Halfnutz is giving some sarcastic cool, but very GOOD advice in not ruining a very high quality stock exhaust system. An after market system will surely fail long before the original would have. If there were real measureable performance and/or mileage gains to offset the cost it may be worth it, but realisticly it usually doesn't. Just adding "noise" will often result in more "pain" than "gain".

Just to qualify my opinion...I'm old.... I have a hotrod...its loud....its gotten me in trouble! blush

I'd don't mind a mellow, throaty rumble a little bit louder than stock, but some of these things passed off as "mufflers" are a joke. They're way too loud (read annoying) for street use/daily driving.

On my old 94 pickup, I replaced the stock muffler with a Dynomax something or another. It's got a decent tone, just a touch louder than the stock one was.

If you're looking for a real bark though, that one's not for you. I just implore to you to not make it too loud. It does get annoying after a while, not just for you but others around you too.

    • I love my custom Adam Bricker rods.  The guy just makes rods that look, feel, and preform well. Plus he has some really great options like a rod butt that pops out the back with a fish hook remover. You can also get the option of being able to change out blanks if you want. Which comes in handy if a guy goes from panfishing to walleyes. Plus he stands behind his work. The guy is an artist when it comes to building rods not only with looks, but preformance & function. Nothing else comes close to what he builds. With that being said, I do consider them a luxury item.   I have a slight addiction and have about 50 open water rods and 40 ice fishing rods, that range from cheap to expensive.  rl_sd pretty much said it all though. For $30 or less a guy can get a solid ice rod combo that preforms just fine. One of my favorite ice rods is a south bend Rod and reel combo I picked up for $25. It has an 8 ball Bering reel and a ML Rod that works well for perch and walleye. 
    • Minnesota, Merica, and the World commie boy!
    • Yep.  Before we were married, camped at fall lake MEA weekend.  In a tent.  Snow falling in the cornflakes.   I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now.  Or something like that.  Mama ain't happy ain't nobody happy.
