Jr. T vs 66rc

Haha, I know most of you looked at the title of this thread and laughed, because we all know there is very little comparision between getting a Jr. T or a 66rc. But the past couple of months Ive been working alot because I cant ride, because of my ankle. Anyways Ive worked and Ive come up with almost a grand, and Ive decided to get a new fork. I have made a decision im either going to go all out and buy a 66rc, or just spend less and have a fork that Ive ridden, and I like how they ride, and I can deal with it. I can get a Jr. T new for about 370, or i can get a 66rc for 495. I would soon after get dual aircaps for the Jr. T, so that knocks 50 bucks off the difference. My question is, is is woth the extra 100 bucks for the 66rc?

I assume you are putting this on a hardtail, maybe even a DJ hardtail? If so I would get the single crown for the fact it will be easier to do dj with a single crown.

Haha, actually yes I will be DJ with it, but not alot. My name is not accurate anymore because I sort of got out of DJ. Ive gotten into FR/DH alot more, thats why Im getting a DH fork, but im keeping my hardtail, Ill take a hardtail over a FS any day.
