Wheel hop issues!!! opinions please

truck is in sig with all mods, im not looking to run at the track or anything just want to know what you guys think would be my best bet to cut down on wheel hop when im in the sand or dirt at the ranch and they break loose it starts hopping like crazy, opinions on the best bang for my buck, on a budget here

traction bars?
traction blocks?
anything else?

ooo yeah and if i end up getting new blocks and i want to go up one inch taller than stock do yall think my factory shocks would be fine until i get to replace them?


Thanks in Advance

ladder bars help a lot, the longer, the better.

Go with the guys that started traction blocks. One up Offroad! Your suspension works the way it was designed no binding! These bars do not limit your suspension travel.

I looked at them and i really like the design, but my broke *** is going to be working some side jobs, doing some land clearing just to save up the cash to purchase them. But yeah they look like a great product. When i talked to treavor at PMF he said his are designed to let you suspension still function 100% like stock no limit or binding

sweet!!!! im thinking about going with a 1" taller than stock rear block, because i have my 2.5" leveling kit up front and i think with the extra 1" it would look pretty good

I put on a couple of Icon's 2.5" kits & they came w/ a 4" block in the rear.

The stance turned out perfect. One was a 05 & the other was a 08.

Well that is too bad. I can't imagine the price difference is all that different. You sure you investigated all your options with the OUO system. There are few different combinations/options that are cheaper.
