There are several different places to add more speakers to your truck. One place is in the doors. One thing to remember, if you have power windows, there is a window motor in the bottom of the door. I have overcome this by moving the map pockets to the bottom of the door and adding a speaker, 5X7's, on each side where the map pockets where originally. If you have manual crank windows it is possible to add speakers as bis as 6X9's to the bottom of the door with no troubles. There are other places like the kick panels if you have the money for them and dont want to cut on your doors to place speakers. Each installation job is specific to the owner's choices. The limit to what you can do is your imagination and wallet. But is it very possible to have a good looking installation job done by yourself for next to nothing. This section is added for those of you looking for ideas for installing speakers in your truck or have ideas you would like to share with others. Lets make it loud enough to hear.
What size speakers are in the dash , does anyone know? Mine are a bit .. shot, but I would like to keep at least 2 speakers in the dash since it consumes next to no space, and it does actually sound good. I just wanna know how much it's gonna run me before I rip open more of the dash. I know they are relatively small, but there are so many small sized speakers, it's confusing.

when i put speakers in mine i used 8" rounds and made "kick panels" to go down under the dash near the feet. i used some carpeting that was on the doors to make them the same color as the carpet on the floor (show truck) and virtually impossible to see from the outside.
another note would be that this truck was auto so i had extra room where the clutch peddle would normally be.
*" subs are big to be fitting in there and they usually prefer some type of enclosure to make sound great, but freeair applications for a mid-bass works well like that. Very good information there. If you get a chance to make some pictures, email them to me and I will post them up for others to see.
