    I made a habit of touching the door with the back side of my hand since its less sensitive and dissipating the charge that way every time I get out.
    This! Except 6 years for me

    My shocking car!

    Anybody had the door panel off? There is a screw in the "well" where you grab the door to push/pull. I don't know (but am afraid it is is it threaded into plastic or metal? If it sits in metal, then it would be easy to just leave the cover over the screw head open and touch that as your moving in/out. If it's in a plastic clip that wouldn't work. I'll check with an Ohm-meter later, but have no idea when I might get around to it, so if someone else gets to it first, please let us know.
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    Threads like this make me laugh.

    The automotive equivalent to jiggle the handle.
    Not as many parts left over this time... what am I missing?

    I have never been shocked getting in or out of my car.

    Our Ram is real bad there, too.
    But it's nothing compared to the shocks I dish out driving...
