      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 .

Would any recommend towing a 4-wheeler with a 4-cyl vehicle?

The truck isnt always available when I want to go fishing so I was hoping to put a hitch on the car.

600 lb 4-wheeler -- simple 2 place trailer.

Owners manual states ability to tow 2000 lbs/200 lb tounge wgt.

Mechanics at dealership dont really have an opinion as it doesnt come up very much.

Should I just forget about it?

In my younger years in college I towed a lot with a 4cyl Plymouth Sundance 5 speed. Whenever I moved I hauled my furniture on a trailer, snowmobile, small boat... Stopping was the issue, so just make sure you can stop when you need to with any kind of load.

Personally, I don't see it being an issue with an ATV and a small trailer.

I will start off saying a car is not made for pulling.

With that said, the manual Trans is a plus and if you have a hitch on it, see how it pulls. Start out slow and feel the car. In my younger years, I pulled plenty of stuff with cars that had manual's.

It will be a pull, but give her a good old MN try. The clutch is the only thing that will be suffering during your pull. Well, the axles and drive train might see their fare share of the action.

Good luck!

Like mentioned earlier make sure it stops OK. It ain't always about the power to move it, you also got to stop it. The brakes on a truck are much larger than on a car.

I should have worded this a little better. By me saying starting out slow, I ment at first, take extra caution during all times while driving.

Good luck and have your brakes checked.
