XtremeTerrain: If you could have any modifications done, what would they be?
DawnMarie: Since I broke last weekend my present endeavor is to replace the stock Dana 35 with a Dana 44 and upgrade to lockers and disc breaks, and add a slip yoke eliminator so I don’t break again.

XtremeTerrain: Do you belong to any off roading organization, if so which one(s)?
DawnMarie: I joined my first off road club in Feb 2010, The Wasatch Outlaw Wheelers, I never dreamed that joining a club to have some wheeling time was going to be the most amazing choice I ever made. I joined a family, I love everyone in the club, I have never felt so accepted and part of something.

XtremeTerrain: Why you love Jeep Off Roading?
DawnMarie: I love the freedom, being able to go places that most cant, seeing the world from a new vantage point. And most of all, I love the overcoming of obstacles, that my be my own fear or a rock pile. I like being challenged and overcoming.

  1. I’m so impressed by the gals who are willing to take on this predominantly male sport. I’ve seen some women who could put a large majority of the guys to shame. My wife won’t even ride with me, let alone drive it herself. I haven’t given up hope of converting her though. I keep showing her all of the females that have been chosen here and I think I see a spark of interest. Wish me luck!
