    Which fork to get

    I would steer clear of the DJ series because the seals don't work and the damping is non-existent. I don't know if you are partial to the Marzocchi lineup but the Shermans are a worthy competitor. I would look into the 66VF. If all you are doing is bashing and demolishing then you will need a fork that can take the abuse. The 66 lineup would be a perfect choice. I have noticed that the Z series seems to be a little flexy, keep in mind that I am 210 lbs. I have noticed that when hammering on the pedals, the eight inch rotor seems to want to rub on the pads, creating a sound much like yoda and Darth going at it with the "night sticks". I have not noticed this problem with the 66 or the Sherman.

    look at the 66 maybe...
    also check out the new z1's with 150mm and the old z150 should be cheap.

    the VF is 150 mm of travel, the RC has 170mm. its exactly like the 888rc and the 888vf, different dampening and less travel (sometimes VF 170 and RC 170 or 200)

    I think you get it

    not sure if you are worried about how tall it will be, but other people have said that their 66s are as tall as 888s...
