Perhaps a longer travel fork than for dirt jumping and certainly wider bars for control in the rough. Other than that, they're all the same. It's just a choice between gears or single speed. Some of the steepest lines I've ridden have been on a hardtail.

I'm planning to build a DJ frame and 180mm fork single speed. is that good enough?

If anything, 180 may be a bit too much. it will raise the BB quite a bit. 160, or even a bit less might be better.

I've been riding a hardtail with a 160 mm fork for more than 3 years, mainly freeride and dh and it's great!!
