I was under the impression that specific year you couldn't even disable traction control or do a burn out, it's controlled by the PCM. Hopefully someone can prove me wrong because if that's the cause that was a gay on Dodges part.

Line locks are the preferred method of doing a burnout. They lock the front brakes and let the rears free. The way it works is you step on the brake, press and hold or set the line lock. Then do your burn. Release the line lock and your ready to go.

As for the issue of traction control and the PCM, that's a good question. Keep in mind these trucks weren't built/designed for racing or doing burn outs.

Not worth it at all unless you're running a sticky tire.
