i solved it by getting a change of shoes ; yep by going out and getting a pair of anti-static shoes it worked. i looked at them closely and saw a small copper piece inside the shoe that goes through the shoe to the sole. so i put a piece of stranded copper wire through each of my sandals and a pair of tennis shoes and it compleatly solved the problem. shoulda known better...thanks for all your suggestions. obtw scotchguard didnt work. seeker nospam@verizon.net wrote in message i have a 03 2500 diesel with cloth seats. depending on what i am wearing there are times when i get out of the rig and get zapped with static electricity. sometimes its really a hard zap. is there a grounding strap that i am missing or something between the seat and the frame that was left off could a drag strap cure this problem anyone else have this problem jim g .

hi there.....are radar detectors allowed in montanna and south dakota states yes only virginia and i think wash dc dont allow them. -- moparman----remove clothes to reply i believe that ny state and connecticut allow their possession but it is illegal to use them. washington dc and va ban their possession obviously that covers use as well. .
