If you like and find a good deal on a front you can try that later. I would recommend a 606 or TKC front if you find them cheap since you like the dirt a little more and don't usually get to stupid on the pavement.

As I recall that day in the mud is the only time I ever saw you open that 950 up and play. You may like the fact that the back will break loose a little sooner on the loose gravel.
I may just be better off to keep the MT21 combo because when I ride it will always be with you guys or in Colorado and the pace is always quick enough traction for the front tire is pretty important. Problem solved.
