I get shocked almost every time I get out of my F1. Half the time I get shocked by the door handle while I'm still sitting in the truck... and I have rubber floor mats. I just think my truck hates me.

+1 for touching the door frame before stepping out. Works for me, though sometimes still get a small (but much weaker) shock from it.

htjunky, I can't read your posts because of the color you use but if you use a rubber ground strap on your trk it will stop the shocking events.

One thing you need to watch is when you are filling your gas tank and it sparks like that you could end up burning your trk and the gas station down. It has happened and does from time to time.

Ok johnny, we got the spark figured out. But my question for you... Is Doc really faster than you or did you get cheated?

Thats what it is. Ever been to a new car show, where they let people sit in the cars to look at them? It's a lovely shocking experience.
