what does RCD, DWB, FTW, DBR mean??.. any others too.

so i feel like a douche asking a stupid question but i figured we could write out some of the terminology that ya'll are using... for me and the newbie's here at RF.

so i was wondering what these mean:

FTW-

DWB-

RCD- i know this is some kind of suspension but not sure what it does

DBR-

i've seen ya'll using them quite a bit but some of us are truck stupid like me hahaha!!! also add some other one's that you can think of... thanks.


EDIT: here's a list from the 5 pages for a quick reference that are vehicle related.


FTW= for the win
DWB= deep wedgewood blue
RCD= brand of suspension lift
DRB= not sure i think its another paint color
DBR is dixon brothers suspension
