What can I do to make it stop?

I have a 96 Crew Cab with an 8ft bed, and it wheel hops like crazy.

What can I do to make the wheel hop stop?

i have the same problem I see you have a 5 speed manual which makes it harder to burn off but an auto can get the tires warm to stop wheel hop you can do it with a manual but it not good on the clutch but if you can let it burn of the wheel hop will go away if you can keep it going. other wise every time you do it it going to be there. They may also make some devices the eliminate wheel hop I know they do for cars and non leaf spring setups don't know about our trucks

You need to buy or build a set of traction bars.

by the picture is yours a 4 door?? Mine is a standard cab. when I made mine I just tryed to keep the angle of the traction bars even with the drive shaft with a normal load on it. so my lengh may not work for you. but if you want as soon as the rain lets up will slide under and see.
