What is your hitch height? Might be too low or you may need more tire pressure. I was running 55 to 60psi in the rear.

Like clay said look at the ouo bar there are a few others you could look at...

You may want to check out psa, psn, or comp d because there are quite a few pullers on those sites

I'm sporting a set of Caltrec's on my F-150. Not sure what they offer for yours though. They can also custom build them to your specs. I started getting wheel hop when I switched over to M&H 28x11.5 slicks at the track.
