Abbreviations, Acronyms, and Terms

I found this buried in the cellar of the forum and thought that it might help some of our newer members. Here's a list of abbreviations commonly used in forums and also some referring to Jeep parts etc...

Common Abbreviations for Wrangler models (and their ancestors):

MB = WWII Jeep manufactured by Willys-Overland
GPW = WWII Jeep manufactured by Ford
M38 & M38A1 = Korean War era Jeeps
CJ = Short for "Civilian Jeep" in models from the CJ2A thru the CJ7
YJ = The first Jeep to carry the "Wrangler" name. The YJ doesn't stand for anything, it's just a manufacturing code.
TJ = The second generation Wrangler and again, the TJ doesn't stand for anything.
LJ = "Long Jeep" is the unofficial term for the TJ Unlimited edition because of it's longer wheel base.
JK = The third generation Wrangler. The JK label can refer to both the 2-door and 4-door version.
JKR = JK Rubicon model (normally mentioned this war only for the 2-door Rubicon)
JKS = JK Sahara model (normally mentioned this war only for the 2-door Sahara)
JKU = The JK Unlimited (4-door) model
JKUR = JK Unlimited Rubicon model
JKUS = JK Unlimited Sahara model
JL = The forth generation Wrangler. Just as with the JK model, the JL label can refer to both the 2-door and 4-door version. As with the YJ and TJ, and JK, the "JL" doesn't really mean anything to anyone other than to distinguish the model.
JLR = JK Rubicon model (normally mentioned this war only for the 2-door Rubicon)
JLS = JK Sahara model (normally mentioned this war only for the 2-door Sahara)
JLU = The JK Unlimited (4-door) model
JLUR = JK Unlimited Rubicon model
JLUS = JK Unlimited Sahara model

Common Forum Abbreviations and Lingo:

BTT = Back To Top (used when one feels the need to bump a thread to
the top of the main page)
TTT = To The Top (same as above)
BTW = By The Way
LOL = Laughing Out Loud
ROFL = Rolling On the Floor Laughing
LMAO = Laughing My Arse Off
IIRC = If I Recall Correctly
IME = In My Experience
IMO = In My Opinion
IMHO = In My Honest (Humble) Opinion
AFAIK = As Far As I Know
AFAICS = As Far As I Can See
WB = Welcome Back
TY = Thank You
TIA = Thanks In Advance
OTOH = On The Other Hand
OP = Original Poster (generally refering to the person that started the thread)
WTF = What The ____ ?
POS = Piece Of ____
SOL = Sorry out of Luck
FWIW = For What It's Worth
HTH = Hope That Helps
BRB = Be Right Back
BBFN = Bye Bye For Now
TTFN = Ta Ta For Now
TTYL = Talk To You Later
IOW = In Other Words
BTA = But Then Again
FYI = For Your Information

Common Technical Abbreviations:

BB= Budget Boost
BL = Body Lift
MML = Motor Mount Lift
LA = Long Arm Suspension (referring to control arms)
SA = Short Arm Suspension (also referring to control arms)
AT = Automatic Transmission OR All-Terrain
MT = Manual Transmission OR Mud-Terrain
TC = Transfer Case OR Torque Converter
SYE= Slip Yoke Eliminator (also called a fixed-yoke conversion or a short shaft kit)
SA = Solid Axle
SFA= Solid Front Axle
SRA= Solid Rear Axle
CA = Control Arm
LCA= Lower Control Arm
UCA= Upper Control Arm
IFS= Independent Front Suspension
IRS= Independent Rear Suspension
SOA= Spring Over Axle

CPS= Crankshaft Position Sensor
MAP= Manifold Absolute Pressure(sensor)
O2 = Oxygen (sensor)
NSS= Neutral Safety Switch (sometimes called Neutral Start Switch)

Some of this info was “borrowed” from another forum. I’m hoping the technical information is accurate
