I used my 6 1/2" bostons in the rear. Had to get the tin snips out though =]

At worst, you could fab some brackets to make them work.

edit: it was a pita running the wiring through that rubber channel =\

I would say your best bet for up front is to get the Kick Pods/panels from Crutchfield for your truck... the are already formed to location and have room for the 5.25 compnent system. you will just have to mount the tweeter up on the dsah or on your door somewhere.

but like he said PITA running wiring through the rubber channel.

6.5" fit in our doors with no sheetmetal modification. you can make some plates out of 1/4" MDF or plywood to fit over the oval factory hole or get some adapter plates which are made by Metra and Scosche for 10-15 depending on waht your local audio shops like to charge

I used 1/8" aluminum, I know I have the luxury of having it. But I did the same, just cut out somewhat larger than the oval and cut out 5.25" hole in the center. Then I just used self tappers to secure the plate. I put eDead on the back to prevent rattles also.

i put some 6.5 comp's in my 01 mazda 626. i used 2 pices of 1/4 hardbord and cut one to opening of the orignal speaker size, and another ring for the aftermarket speaker. i used some gorilla glue to stick it together.


and a shot of the tweeters

Yes you can. Schosche(sp) makes an adapter if your lazy as well. SA-86 or something like that.

I'm going to make some adapters like ole boy did, but I'm making mine outta 3/4" birch or oak, forget which one has a tighter grain.

Then I'm gonna seal up the door panels with Second Skin junk.

Tin snips were alot easier =] There's so many holes in the door it's not like it "sealed".

No power and 5 wires in the doors + Lots of sound dampening = sealed doors.
