6X8 or 5X7 ovals should pop right in, provided they're not too deep. Fitment tends to get tricky at around 2.5" mounting depth.
If you get 6X8's or 5X7's with a coaxial-mounted tweeter (sitting atop the big cone) you might get some fit-up issues on the front as well.
6X9's are a different and larger format, and will require tweaking / trimming to install on 2001 - 2004 Tacos. Almost no one installs 6X9's, because if you're going to that amount of trouble you might as well install round speakers (which generally have better sound quality than ovals).
