    My dad bought an '03 S-10. Great little truck. The one thing me and him HATE is this Must apply brake to shift from park deal. What do I need to do to take this little safety thing off. His '94 s-10 did not come with this.

    You should have your foot on the brake when shifting to- from park so I see no problems. My '95 C3500 is that way too

    When we were kids, playing hide and seek, my 6 year old sister hid in the cab of my dads pickup. Nobody found her, and when it was time for her to come out of hiding, she pulled her self up off the floor using the column shifter and pulled it out of park.

    The driveway was a pretty steep hill, and thankfully she wasnt hurt badly, but that was damn scary. The truck ended up in the ditch.

    Granted, the e-brake should have been on....but I guess the apply brake to shift thing makes sense to me.
