It shouldnt hop bad if you run rigid suspension in the back and hang a fair amount of weight in the front.

Wthe right tire pressure and rigid supsension shoudlnt hop too bad. some clubs dont allow traction bars.

1996 Gmc k2500 4x4 6.5 turbo diesel, with mods Blew the head gasket, put all new heads, valves, injecotrs gaskets etc on the truck only to get it together and find out it had no oil pressure, and sounded horrible (pry a spun bearing). SOLD

From my experience pulling with mostly stock trucks, the longer wheel based trucks don't hop much any way, I never did, and neither did any friends of mine. Not sure if we just got lucky, or the little bit of setup was right.

ease out of the hole, run rigid suspension in the rear, clamp the springs, and move your seat as close to the steering wheel as possible so that your foot cant come up and down on the go pedal, this will induce hopping also

and lastly have fun!!
