With the introduction of the newly redesigned1994 Ram, many people were interested in comparing notes with other owners but there was no place dedicated to 94+ Ram enthusiasts. What is now DiRT was a small mailing list started in February 1996 by Chris Hedemark, a new V10 Ram owner. After many problems with his Ram, Chris traded it for a Mustang and the list passed to John Donovan, who maintained it as the Ram Truck Mail List (RTML) until he killed it on May 25, 1998 during a Memorial Day flame war. A few days later Andi Vogt resurrected the list as DiRT, the name it continues to use today. In January 2002, the outdoorwire server crashed and the list was moved to a new home.
One of the FAQ's is: what does DiRT stand for?
Originally, Andi was going to start a new list for off road Ram discussion, but it became a replacement for RTML. The letters sort of stand for Dodge Ram Trucks. Other suggestions include:

I have all of the Dirt digests since October 5, 1999, and some digests from before then.
