Default SEAT HELP - being SHOCKED!!!

So I took out my bucket seats in the 96 because they were so damn uncomfortable. I put in buckets from a 98.

The 96 had this really long rail on the side that held the seat belt buckle.

The 98 has the buckle right to the seat.

My problem now is that every time I get out of the truck and grab the door to shut it, I get the SHIT SHOCKED out of me. And it hurts going thru your finger tips! lol

Anyhow, do I need to run a ground strap or wire from the seat to the truck frame or a good ground? Will doing that discharge the electricity before I get out?

Cheaper method but you need to remember
Touch the metal frame of the door for a couple of seconds before you let your feet touch the ground. To balance the static charge, you need to touch metal as you slide out

But a grounding strap is a for sure fix.
