Wheel hop

My truck has the worst wheel hop I have ever expiernced to the point that I cant drive off road at all or even drive in soft snow at all. As soon as the wheels start to spin they start to hop and they hop BAD does it in both 2x4 and 4x4. It doesnt matter whether its sand, snow, packed dirt and even sometimes mud. Do you think it could just be shocks or is there something more to this.
Thanks

Yeah you need to get some traction bars or you might start breaking parts soon. I built mine for around 200 and they work perfectly.

Traction bars. I had the same issue, once I got mine from Farmboyfabrications it went away. I would recommend them, but it looks like they've closed / are moving their shop.

Yup. Traction bars. My wheel hop was HORRIBLE and after the traction bars is completely gone. I also used Farmboy.

Here's some photos.
