The smell of burning rubber???

when i exit the truck after a drive(distance or speed not a factor) i get the smell of burnig rubber. not everytime, just once in a while. i was told it could be the exhaust hanger bushings. it's no big deal, i am just curious if anyone else has the same issue and what you think it may be. the truck has 9400 miles on it so i thought by now it would stop.

I'm with greif03lb7. I think that smell will go away of you don't press so hard on the accelerator pedal.
If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on Earth. And this idea that government is beholden to the people, that it has no other source of power except to sovereign people, is still the newest and most unique idea in all the long history of man's relation to man.
