Options for factory radio cut-out

So I have my head unit installed in a Tuffy console. Now there is just the open hole in my dash. It's not hacked up or anything. Does anyone know of a CB that could fit in that opening with little to no cutting involved?

I know I could just put a plate over it or something but was thinking of going the CB route. I have the Cobra 75WSXT in my JK but wanted an actual box for the CJ - a little older looking ya know?

Also thought about looking for an original radio to install. Doesn't have to work, just look cool.

I was going to put this one in my dash and put the CB in the console. Looks old enough where it might not stir tooo much attention from punks.

Another option might be to add switches for an ejector seat, headlight machine guns, oil slick, or other bond gadgets.

This is how my stock radio cut out looks now. Its an old 2 knob plate and in the hole is a piece of black plexi glass and screws holding it to the 2 knob plate. My cd player is in a Smitty built locking console box. I didn't want to cut the dash. It has the original 2 knob cut out.
