Shocked on exit

How many of you,get shocked on exit of your trucks? It happens to me more than I can remember any other truck doing to me.Always when I reach to close the door so my feet are on the ground.

Check all your frame to body ground straps. There should be straps from the body to the frame and from the motor to the frame. If they are missing or corroded the body will hold the charge and you are the ground.

Happens to me all the time, I usually shut the door with my elbow because it can be pretty brutal sometimes! I especially notice it in under armour types of clothing, must be something in that material because even around the house its bad. Back on task though, excuse my ignorance on the matter but where are these straps you speak of? How many should there be? I'm sure I speak for Sledfreak when I say I'd love to know more about these because I'd like to fix the problem myself, been getting shocked for too long!

There are woven metal straps that are attached from the body to the frame, engine bloc to the body, trans to the frame, etc. there are usually 2 to 4 on various places. I would pick one up and attach it from the cab to the frame and see if that helps. If not the only other solution is a rubber strap that attaches to the frame and drags the ground. It has metal imbedded to keep the truck grounded.

Yup...been my experience with all my autos. Reason Static is worse in winter is due to lack of humidity...cold air is dry and leads to more static. Few years ago, I had humidifier installed on my home furnace and the HVAC guy told me it would help with static.....he was right!

For your truck or car, try spraying the static cling stuff they make for clothes on the carpet and cloth seats. It will stop the issue.

As said before it is due to the air being so dry in the winter it causes static electricity to be worse. The best way to solve this, I do it all the time and it works 100% of the time, When exiting your truck make sure you are touching a metal part, either the edge of the door or the side of the truck until you clear the cab.
