It's going to slack the steering angle and will climb even worst but I think that if you're getting a DJ Zoke, you do not care a lot about climbing performance. OTOH, It will boost your downhill performace balancing your front and rear suspension travel and the slackened steering angle will give you better control in fast and nasty stuff.
For 30 or 40 bucks more you can get the Z1 Drop Off which seems to me a better all-around fork (not as Jumping specific).
I'm looking into forks for my Warp too. I'm biased towards the MX Comp w/ETA as the area surrounding has lots of climbs and I'm not a jumper (I like to keep the rubber against the soil specially at high speed downhills!!)
Right now I'm just learning to jump, doing 8-10 foot doubles and maybe 12 foot tabletops. I also ride some of the downhill runs where I live. Also, I ride some forest roads with some hillclimbs but I dont think the dj would mess up climbing too much.
