Trek remedy is pretty good. That bike feels like a overgrown Slopestyle bike. Commencal clash might be a little big but might work if you set her up 26/27.5 mullet. Anything from Propain would work too besides the spindrift, which might be a tad big.

Canyon Torque, I've taken mine on plenty of DJ trails.

YT Capra would be a good choice if you can find one in stock

I think you'd be well off with a 130-140mm travel 27.5 trail bike, something along the lines of a Santa Cruz 5010, Transition Scout, Kona Process 134, or one of the Guerilla Gravity bikes configured in such a way (not sure of the model name). I have a Process 134 built up as a sort of trail/slope/jib bike that I've taken on long XC rides, steep and rocky singletrack, relatively large dirt jumps, and some street and stair gaps.

I got a YT Jeffsy 27.5 and it rips dirt jumps just fine along with any gnar.

The Pivot Mach 6 is a one bike quiver IMO

Literally any new enduro bike.

... Unless your dirt jumps require hard pumping to maintain trail speed. In which case it'll feel sluggish and leave you casing.

Riding one myself I would suggest the SB165 if it's within your budget. I would have suggested the Capra but the current range is only 29 or mullet. Personally I think the type of bike you are looking for is 27.5 all round with high progressive suspension kinematics, something that is agile and playful but plush on the gnar and small bumps and with good bottom out resistance.
The previous YT Capra fit the bill perfectly and so does the SB165...I would leave the wagon wheels for the Enduro guys that just want to roll over stuff quickly, what you are looking for is a park/freeride bike, something that can both jump well, is nimble but can eat up the rough stuff without too much concern over having the absolute fastest rolling speed.
Not sure if the Spindrift also fits this bill but is maybe worth a look too.

Spindrift def fits the bill. I do not recommend a 29 at all unless you’re 6 feet tall or over.

Just bought a GT Force and that works really well. Basically do what you're doing
