* Winner Selected 3/9/22 *
If you take a look at the SUVs on the market, many of them have an optional off-road package. Those packages range in form and function–some look the part, while others act the part. Regardless of the package capability, the names given to the off-road packages create a vision of great adventures ahead!
As you can see in the picture above, these off-road packages boast names like Rubicon, Badlands, Sasquatch and Wilderness. Those labels speak to the capability of the vehicle, and conjure up some fun off-pavement excursions.
In December, I wrote about my purchase of a Subaru Outback. In that article, I shared how the new Subaru Wilderness package caused me to consider the Outback. The Wilderness package is the real deal, offering a lifted suspension, special axle ratios, skid plates and more.
It was more vehicle than I needed, but it inspired me to adapt some of those features to my regular Outback. I covered those upgrades in the related article below:

What’s In A Name?
After adding the equipment to my Outback I want to come up with an interesting name (and logo) for the package I created. Unfortunately, most of the names I considered have been used on a lot of other vehicles. Also, I don’t want rip off the Wilderness name. No one likes a poser!
Names like Compass (Jeep), Cheyenne (Chevrolet) and Adventurer (Dodge), Adventure (Toyota RAV4) would work, but are rip offs from other manufacturers. Just like my objection to using the Wilderness name, I need something more original. And fun.
