Looking for tough fat bike wheels/rims

I ride my Foes mutz year round and my rims have been taking a **** kicking in the summer months. I'm not the lightest rider and I like to jump/downhill. Also, the local trails are rocky and rooty and generally hard on wheels.

I'm currently running Bontager jackalope rims, dt350 front/hope fatsno rear and the rims are a little swiss cheesy for my liking... Dented the rear nicely yesterday.

For tires I run maxxis 4.8 fbf front and fbr 4.0 rear both tubeless.

I'd like to stick with a 26" rim, not too fussy on carbon rims but if they are genuinely stronger for a fat bike application I'd consider them.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!
