Easiest thing to do is go and get some speaker adapter wires from Best Buy or Circuit City and hook them into your speakers, then they just plug right into the factory plug so that you can reverse it if need be in the future. Sorry, but I have no pics at this time, but it is pretty straight forward. Do a check for door panel removal and see if that turns up anything.

Hope this helps,

Chance

front door speakers are simple. Just have to remove the door panel and youre set... takes some finesse to get the panel back on but not to bad.

Get wiring adapters for sure, only 10$ or so for a pair.

I cut my connectors off and just soldered in the new wires, it took a minute longer and I know I'm not losing any sound quality thru the adapter.

Its a Holiday! I just added new 6x8 Pioneers in the back of my truck last night. Should of looked here to be informed on the adapters. I too cut and sodered the wires. Looking for a 6x8 with know good base for the front doors. Than I'll have the deck installed I think. Can't wait. 1new thing at a time!
