Acronyms & Abbreviations used

Is it possible to have a new thread or sticky started with this feature? I do know what some of them used on this forum stand for, but there are several I don't know. It would greatly assist the newer users and the not so tech savvy participants of our community. Some that I know, but feel free to add others and I will revise the list(make one complete list) at the end of this month.

TV = Tow Vehicle
GVWR = Gross vehicle weight rating
TPM = Tire pressure monitor
SOB = I have no clue lol
