New offroad business name?

K so heres the story. I've been building custom lifts and other parts for me, my brothers and friends for our cherokees. Probably about once a week i get someone who asks me where i bought my lift from and how they can get it. So i decided to start marketing my products but need some sort of business name. One of my friends thought it would be a funny idea to kinda make fun of toyotas "TRD" symbol on the back of there trucks and come up with something like "JWD" or "JWT", Jeep Wheeling Developement or Teck. Then we thought "BFJ" Big F'in Jeeps but it doesnt exactly seem like a proper name lol. Since Evan is one of the other guys involved in this process I left him up to the ideas. His latest name was "XJT" or Extreme Jeep Teck. This might sound like a stupid question but does anyone have any ideas?

Re: New offroad business name?

Try to pick a name that makes sense, not a name that has a cool acronym. If you make a good product, the name will carry, even without the cool initials.

Trying to make the initials spell something cool is how we end up with the convoluted names on legislative initiatives.

Also OP, remember that you are not reinventing the wheel just lifting Jeeps!

I used that slogan on one of my Omni drag cars. I got a lot of attention and people remembered what it meant.

Re: New offroad business name?

I was planning on stickers and the initials laser cut into my cross member bumpers and slid plates. i like the whole rustys and clayton and such but my first name is kris and last name froehlich. nothing too catchy or distinctive not to mention nobody can say my last name right. lol so the whole xj Teck thing sounds to cheesy or unoriginal?

I would learn how to spell things correctly before I decided what to name my business.
