    A legal FCC approved Cb radio is one that has 4 watts rf power in that class you cant beat the tried and proven Cobra 29 ( Lx or Ltd classic) or the new line of Uniden Bearcats like the 880 or 980. If you are not concerned about Fcc look at some of the 10 meter/export radios, my favorite has always been the General Lee, 10 watts rf power, 40 watts pep, loud clear modulation and under 200 bucks if you shop around, keep in mind the export radios will need to be converted to 11 meter band by a cb shop. Best microphone in my opinion is the noise canceling Ranger Sra 198 and you can find them for around 30 bucks. Best antenna depends alot on type of truck and mounting location, if mounting low best option is a top loaded fiberglass in 4 or 5 feet length, the can generally handle 1000 watts so can easily accomadate a 40 watt export radio.

    I believe the Ranger sra 198 microphone is included with the purchase of a new General Lee.

    I bet @rabbiporkchop will have some suggestions for you, when he gets on here. He's pretty good at all this stuff; read some of his posts.

    Best wishes to ya. I've got a cheapie, I run local.... but with that kind of coin you can do rather well for your needs/wants.
