Bed hop

So i was backing out of my parking space at work ,which was under 2 feet of snow, and the bed started to hop like crazy. I thought those JD trac bars were supposed to prevent that?

I think i was just because of the snow. I was on some snow and I got a little hop as well. It would be a hell of a lot more without the bars.

Backing up works the suspension in a way it's not really designed to. Axle wants to go the under the truck instead of out...
