      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 .

How much weight in sand bags is good for a half ton pickup?

Thanks, my back end slides out pretty easy.

I run 4 60# tubes in my F-150 in the winter time. Once I place them in my bed (2 on each side) they really don't slide/move at all. I have them positioned such that I can still also slide my portable in/out with ease.

When my wife was driving the truck in the winter, I had snowtires on the back and 10 70-pounders in the box. It took a lot of snow to slow it down.

I agree (saftey first)anything that is unsecured behind you when traveling foreward is a potential for disaster.Even small items (wrench or tools)in the rear of pickup can be trouble in a collision.Just think of a 40 lb sandbag hitting you in the head at say 40mph."OUTCH!"c63

They are handy for other things, too. Last year when I had my Geo Tracker out ice fishing, I got stuck on the lake, I cracked one sand bag open, and put a little sand under the tire, worked good

Actually sand works better on lake than salt which will weaken the ice below : shocked.gif

When done you can add sand to your driveway or store it until next spring.

4 months of plastic salt bags in the back means some will break and you will have salt all over your bed, rust will make holes in 1 month, in spring your truck will look like swiss cheese.
