Point it straight and floor it

Seriously... lighten the truck up - tailgate, spare, tool boxes, old lady, etc. Try to have an 1/8 tank of gas. Take the truck out of O/D (but leave it in "D"). Left foot on the brake, rev her up to 1500-1700 rpm (but don't break the tires loose) - when the last amber light lights up, GO!

I was thinking like freeze said of a temporary 4 wheel drive launch to avoid tire spin.. it will do it no matter how much I warm them up. Then quickly coming back to 2 wheel all the time going through the gears. (Manual trans). must practice that one

Just make sure you shift out of 4wd immediately after launch (below 10 mph).
