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

So WTF is a Nutter anyway? Keep seeing it in other posts but cant figure it out.

I work much better with context.

You can do things the right way or the wrong way.
Or you can do it MY way...which is like the wrong way, only faster.

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.

Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.

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.

Indeed, it took me some searching too. (I was in the army too)

The opinions of worthless people, are worthless.

The only problem that you have with anyone in this world, is what you expect of them.
