Default Lib Skunk Ape vs Burton Custom X wide vs Burton T6

Height: 6'0
Weight: Fat ass (245)
Boots: K2 Maisis
Boot size: 12
Riding style: All mountain, want to get into some kickers and boxes but mostly freeride I suppose
Age: Old enough to not want to "grow" anymore
Bundings: Flow NX2-SE
Budget: 550 or less (more less than not)
Your location of riding: Colorado with trips to Taho

So Im trying to decide between the above boards. Im leaning toward the Lib but I've always wanted a Custom X. Not sure about the T6 but it comes in a Wide and is fairly stiff for my fat ass to ride fast. In each board Im looking at going about 164/165. I heard that the Lib doesnt have a full wrap on the edge and Im a little concerned about that. I can get each board for around the same price.

What do you guys think? I need to bite the bullet and make a decision today or tomorrow. My current board is a Burton Canyon 173! I also have an old 2005 Custom X 164 that my boots hang over about 1" (havent ridden it). I am thinking about selling the Custom for a few extra dollars on the new board. All comments welcome!

Thanks in advance!
