advice needed on rib

What's the best 2nd hand rib you could get for 6000?? Looking for something to blast about in but can also take pretty rough weather.

A bigger SR possibly, or a 5.3 something. Ribtec, Tornado, Ribcraft.

Go any bigger for 6k and you'll be buying an old nail.

I do love the sr's but I don't like the ones that have the original consoles, its hard to find one that has been modified and looks really nice.

Old man Manning (DM on here) has just what you're looking for: refurbished SR5.4 with Yam 85 and a good aftermarket 2-seat console for < 6k. Take a look:
