Dirty Donna is the name that received the most Facebook likes, so that is what Aaron of Flin Flon, Manitoba, calls his ’11 Ram 2500 Power Wagon. Dirty Donna also fits because Aaron loves to take his ride “mudbogging”. Aaron goes to “numerous mud drags, car shows and off road parks” every year. He writes: “By far my favourite would be Al Benesocky’s Filthy Redneck Country Club. FRCC is a one of a kind off road park.” His preferred FRCC is in Waldron SK and here’s why:” All the mud you can tear up, live music, food and drinks

Suspension - Zone Off-Road 8” Suspension Lift Kit - Revtek 2” Coil Spacers - BDS Suspension Traction Bars Tires & Wheels - 38.5x13.50R17 Super Swamper Boggers - 17x8 Eagle Alloy Wheels Body - Bushwacker Fender Flares - CTC Fab Grille Emblem - Rhino-Lined Bumpers, Grille and Flares - N-Fab Rear Runner Bumper

and the best part is you camp there all week- end. Wake up, MUD, eat, MUD, sleep, MUD!” One time at FRCC, he got so stuck that ‘there was mud coming into my truck. Ended up with a Mega truck pulling me out and resulting in a broken bumper.” Good times! Aaron’s idea of a great weekend shows in his plans for a Dirtworks 4X4 camp out this coming year: “Drive some serious trails down to a good camping/fishing area to camp out for the night & return, hopefully with a few broken parts but more happy faces.”

He is the admin of a club called Dirtworks 4X4, which is based out of northern Manitoba. Although he did not end up buying his Ram as stock, he has good advice for those who do: “Start with a lift and tires, then once that is set in place you can buy the driveline components. Upgrading the driveline is a must because if you run bigger tires on a stock axle and gears, you’re setting yourself up for failure by snapping axles, or not getting the full range of gearing out of your vehicle.” Aaron loves his Warn 12K Winch and plans to get his whole truck bedlined to help protect it from dents and scratches from the trails.
