Anything will fit for our deck. All you need is the install kit.

Rear speakers are a 6x8 I believe, not the traditional 6x9, but there is a how to in the section of hot to make it work.

As for amps, anything will fit, you just have to wire it yourslef.

You have to trim the bezel to get a double din head unit in.

Speakers are 6x8 but you can get an adapter for to fit 5 1/4 component speakers in.

Yeah its super easy to make one fit, just trim the lip around the back of the radio opening.

The Pioneer AVIC F-series are incredibly nice and you can find them for super cheap on Amazon right now. I'm very happy with my cheap Pioneer 6x8s, if your looking to amp them I would go with some Infinity components.
