With a 5 link rear you shouldn't be having any wheel hop issues in soft stuff. Maybe a bit if you were trying to burn the rear tires off on pavement. Aside from any deflection in the crappy rubber bushings Chrysler uses, there should not be any axle wrap.

I get it to with the 5th shock, it's just the design of the 4 link. It's designed for road manners not off road. If the used a triangulated 4 link in the rear you wouldn't have the bouncing of the rear axle in soft material. The front will shake and bounce no matter what the design
