Traction Help.......Traction Bars?

Allright guys and gals....I need some help. My Dodge rearend bounces like crazy when I really get into it. In this snow, in 4x4 hi I have had to get right into the throttle some.....but let right back out because it's bouncing so damn bad. I replaced all the shocks with some good heavy duty off-road shocks over the summer, and it helped some. Guess it's time for more drastic actions.....

Ladder Bars....who has a good set that will keep the back-end of the truck planted where it's supposed to be?

Lets hear some recommendations and see some pics.......

would ladder bars for a 2500 fit that, or is it completley different. Caltracs has a set for the 2500's but i haven't really found anything yet for the 3500's, however have seen 3500's w/ ladder bars.
