Im a jolly dude and enjoy doughnuts often. When I jump my pig it lands hard. I dont know if Im bottoming out or set up to stiff. I just know when I jump it 6 foot and land on a flat area I flippin feels like hell. And Im not gonna lay off the doughnuts, LOL!

Sounds like you haven't setup your bike for your weight - which means putting the right springs in.
Also it sounds like you're using your Pig for motocross - which it isn't meant for, built for and probably won't last for if you do that a lot to it.
Buy a 450 X-bike? It's bound to last longer. Oh, sure, that one also you'll have to spring for your weight, which in fact anyone has to do when owning an offroad bike: set the correct sag - if you cannot (within the normal parameters) then change the spring(s), quite simple actually.
