axle hop

my truck starts hoping the rear when ever it breaks loose.
i guess its a good thing it keeps me from doing stupid things but it really worries me sometimes when i'm trying to pull something on dirt or something and it starts doing that. is there any thing i can do to make it stop?

I have 33" tires and run them.

If they are built right, they will not really affect ride quality that much.
