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?

1996 Ford F350, 7.3 PSD, crew cab, 8ft(Line X'd) bed, 4x4, 5 speed manual, 4.11 gears, 285/75/16 Nitto Terra Grapplers, 222,000 miles, 3x4" down pipe, 4" exhaust with 5" polished SS tip, gutted EBPV, chrome nerf bars, autometer ultra lite pyro and boost gauges, alpine cd player, alpine speakers, Garmin GPS.

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.
