Freeride fork?!?!

Which of these forks would be good for some small freeride nothing over 6ft:
2005 Marzocchi Dirt Jumper 3,
2005 Manitou Splice Super,
2005 Marzocchi All Mountain 3,
...right now I ride with SR Suntour XC60 with 75mm of travel and want to upgrade on my norco wolverine...anyone know if those would be good for my norco? Thanks!

66rc is a bit out of my price range...I don't want to spend more than $300 on forks.

I would say the DJ's thou, they aren't that much bigger but they don't cost as much.

Or look at the Drop Off's. They are really good. But I'm not sure how much travel they have.
