I joke all the time when I see guys with FTW tatoos. I say it stands for Free The Whales.

Yeah but acronyms like FTW, FUBAR, FWIW, IIRC, TTT, IMO, IMHO, RTFM, STFU etc etc are all common ones and not Jeep specific. They are in the same category as LOL and emoticons...

Ten characters is the minimum post length allowed by the forum software. If you post isn't at least ten characters long you can add "10 char" to meet the requirement or use "..............." like I sometimes do (I'm lazy) or you can just continue to ramble on as I am now.

FTW anyone?
FTW is indeed "**** The World". Anyone that tells you otherwise is just trying to be politically correct. First place I saw it was in the Army. Guys in Viet Nam frequently had it on their helmets along with FTA - "**** The Army". But neither of these are Jeep or 4x4 related and don't belong here.
