    need for upgrade advice

    i bought a giant yukon fx,i'm a motocross rider but i'm new to mountain biking,i like the bike,but i did not think i would progress so rapidly,ive only be riding for a few weeks but i can handle the bike pretty well,and i feel as if my riding level is surpassing my front fork.its a rock shox dart 2 model

    any suggestions for a descent front end fork for under 300$ that will allow me to hit some 4ft dropoffs without destroying the shock
    also i am 6'3 210lbs if that matter

    anyone selling a used shoot me a pm also

    "...front end fork" is redundant.

    At 6'3" and 210lbs I'd look not only at a new fork but a whole new bike. No joke! With or without "4 foot drops...", a person of your size (with a moto-x background) will destroy the bike - and maybe yourself in the process. Sell your rig now before it breaks / becomes a money-pit and shop for a sturdy-build.

    It's a relief to know this bike probably won't see too many 4-foot drops. Maybe some others will chime-in with picks for a fork. This may be the time to consider upgrading the (front) hub to accommodate a 20mm thru-axle also.
