    It happened in a few other vehicles I've owned. They both had cloth seats and carpeted floormats. I'd just spray some Static Guard on them once in a while and it seemed to help quite a bit. I haven't notice it yet in the Gladiator.

    I got shocked by my 2015 Challenger Scat Pack every day. The only solution was to trade it in for a Challenger Hellcat. Must have been the engine...Ha!

    I get zapped daily. Was just thinking of this tonight getting out of my JT, thinking good thing I don't have anything flammable in the garage. I have cloth seats, doesn't matter what I'm wearing, I'll get a good zap every time. ⚡

    A bit of trivia: It takes 30,000 volts for static electricity to jump a centimeter or 75,000 volt to jump an inch.

    In this foto I pulled a nylon jacket off a fabric chair and put it on, then went turn the light off and got this shock.

    We actually have some humidity, 31% but usually less than that. I'll see if I can get a video next time I get home at night and can better see the spark.
