      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 .

All terrain tire suggestions for 1/2 ton 4x4 pickup

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for tire suggestions, what brands/model have you folks had luck with? I'm leaning towards Dunlop Rovers, I had a set on a Toyota Tacoma that went 80K+ and still had good tread.

thanks, LB

I'm planning on getting the Bridgestone Revos in the spring when I replace mine.

I put these on my k1500:

MULTI-MILE WILD COUNTRY RADIAL XTX SPORT

I got the 265/16 8-ply, so had to get the rigid stems for higher pressure, and tread was a bit deeper. I just wanted tougher tire that 6 ply. I like them so far, used North Dakota field driving, logging road driving, and just normal snow. They look better on the truck than the picture \:\) As they have a nice squared off edge look, not rounded. Not noisy.

They are "off brand" so cheaper, but still about $450 after mounting, tax and the extra cost of the stems. We have had good luck with Kumhos as well. Good luck with whatever you get.

(FYI - I personally had bad luck with BFG AT, both in getting stuck and separations, but I know friends like them. I laugh when I hear how much they pay for them ;\)

I had good luck with my Goodyear Wrangler AT/S. 70,000 before it was time for new tires! I went with the LT simply because of the tougher sidewalls, maybe a little stiffer ride but I'll sacrifice that knowing when I'm in rocks my sidewalls wont rupture or cut so easy. Most tires out there are fairly decent if you keep your alignment in check and always monitor air pressure. It boils down to how much you really want to spend!

My favorite is the Michelin LTX A/T. Spendy, but decent ride, decent traction, not much noise, and wear like iron.

I've heard the Revos are good too but haven't tried them. The Michelins just refuse to wear out...

Had Dunlop Radial Rovers (likely older models) before the Michelin and I didn't like them that much. They seemed to wear pretty quickly on my truck (K-1500 ext. cab) and the traction was only fair, IMO.

You can find many reviews at the Tire Rack website. I always consider the total number of miles reported when looking at reviews too.

I also run these. I have had them on my last 3 trucks and will continue to run them on my vehicles. Great tire IMO and I have gotten great mileage out of them. I'm at about 55,000 miles on my 03' Dodge 2500 (first 30k of that was on an 03' 1500). They have ALWAYS gotten me where I need to go.

I second this site. It's a good resource for researching many brands at once.

I'm a big BFG All-Terrain fan as well!

I'm on my 3rd set of All-Terrains now, my last set ran to 105,000 miles. As long as I've owned BFG All-Terrains, which covers about 9-10 years and nearly 300,000 miles of driving, I have never had a single flat until I got a nail in my last set, which was the day I bought new ones.

Balance and rotate frequently and you can run these things a very long time.

What do they say... you get what you pay for. These tires are worth every single penny IMO.

I have about 90,000 on a set of Goodyear Wrangler AT's. I will probably run them to 100,000 and then either trade my truck in, or replace tires, not sure which yet. They are awesome tires, quiet with great traction.

      F.H., Fish deep and slow with lindys or jigs with minnows. Sometimes smaller minnows will work best at other times large suckers or shiners will get more hits. Cliff

      I'll venture a guess and say 1st weekend of December we'll have a good 4" to walk on.  Then it will continue to freeze to at least 12" before it gets snowed on

      I have the above motor that I use for duck hunting. When the temperature gets into the 30s (like this coming weekend), it can sometimes get stuck in either forward or reverse if it kills at low idle. In the 2nd picture, the throttle is open slightly. The curve part is attached to the shifter. It is in forward. If the motor dies and I close the throttle, the shifter can't be put into neutral (it needs to move up) because the it is blocked by the part above it. I need to take the top off and manually move the throttle closed (to the left) like the 1st picture. I think there is some grease that lubricates the throttle as it rotates under the flywheel. When cold, the grease is thick and sticks. Is there any lubricant I can spray up in the area that the throttle rotates? I'm hesitant to do so because of the electrical components in the area.

      Coming up this weekend with a friend of mine, even though the weather looks terrible. Any advice for how to catch them when mother nature brings the hammer down?  Highs in the mid 30's, lows in the low 20's.   On Friday I had a muskie in the upper 40s hit a 19 1/2" walleye.  As usual she let go at boatside, but it was fun while it lasted.
