I'm a big fan of Marzocchi products for heavier riders. I'm on my 4th or 5th set of forks from these guys and they are/were all awesome.
As a big rider, I will sing the praises of the 20 mm thru axle till I'm blue in the face. Definitely worth the extra money.
My current fork is a 66 with the air pre-load which I was skeptical about. But since it's a low pressure, it seems to be doing just fine for me. I'm running about 12.5 lbs in the left leg (max is 15lbs) and although I'm running a bit more sag, I like the feel. If I bump the pressure to the correct sag height, then it feels too stiff.
