      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 .

Tow prep package

Recommended Posts

Just got a 1995 jeep cherokee from my mother-in-law and it says that it has a tow prep package...What does that mean exactly?

It means it is pre-wired for trailer, it has a hitch and possibly a transmission cooler. Get a mechanic to check if it has the cooler to be sure (it will take 1 minute)

I thought since it is a Jeep that meant it had them two little hooks that you see in the front of vehicles indicating that it was ready to be towed when it borke down. smirk.gif

No doubt that I share that opinion as well:) But the price of $0 (thank you mother-in-law!!), and it beats towing my boat with our van, made it worth a shot.

Valv, I will have a mechanic check on the trans cooler as this was my biggest question. If it does not have one, how vital is it to have it. It has a 5.2 liter V8 and 90% of my trips are around to the brainerd area lakes with 2 long trips to I-falls for some fishing on Rainy.

Thanks for the help and the joke, I think.

Yeah, it was a joke! That is a real good price for it though! Never turn down a gift like that! If you look under the hood at the radiator and see two tubes going into the radiator down on the side plastic piece you probably have a tranny cooler. I think that most vehicles do anymore. I pull my boat around in the summer with my GMC Jimmy and if on flat land I run normal and in the hilly areas I click the TOW/Haul to the on position. That basically makes it dang hard to ever get to OD and raises the shift points quite a bit. Have a good one and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Actually duckslayer, you described the standard option trans cooler. Every automatic transmission has one set up like this. A towing package will usually have an auxillary trans cooler. These are usually easily identifiable by the smaller "radiator" looking piece that is attached to the front of the radiator-a/c condesor. Some manufacturers also run a power steering cooler in front of the radiator which can look simular to a trans cooler.

No kidding, then others have the power steeting oil cooler ??? I never understood that, do we steer that much to be needing it?

I had a '99 Chevy 1 ton diesel with: 1 radiator, 1 Turbo Intercooler, Oil cooler, aux. transmission cooler, engine oil cooler and power steering cooler....
