I've seen a Jeep like that before but I know nothing of this "forward control" name you speak of.

Thats funny, I was bored at work about 2 hours ago and was curious about the new commander and stumbled across the list of jeep models over the years. They had the FC-150 and FC-170 back in the 50's-60's. I'm thinking Forward Control refers to steering column being in front of the axle.
