CB radio for rig?

So Im building a welding rig and Id like to have a decent CB radio in it. Any suggestions? Perferablly smaller with extra features. Id love a SWR meter, NOAA weather radio, and SSB capability. Considering a Bearcat 980SSB but seems a bit large. Anything under $120.

I considered that. Honestly I might be better off with something like the Cobra 19DXIV or Midland 1001LWX just for simplicity. I imagine not many people would use SSB simply because most radios do not have it. And just spend $25 on a SWR meter so I can also tune others radios.
