    I've been looking into upgrading my stock sr5 access cab stereo. Here's the idea...

    Leave the stock head unit, put in a 4 channel amp (any ideas where the best place to put it is?), some component speakers in the front doors, some component's in the rear wing doors.

    The rear doors are a sticking point... I've seen two methods: cut a hole and put an aftermarket grill on it, or cut a hole and put some grill cloth on it.

    Why not just drill a million holes in a pattern? If you did it right it could look totally stock. Anyone done it this way?

    What was the verdict on wiring? Are there any speaker wires going to the rear door or do you need to run new ones?

    Thanks for any advice/opinions.

    i would do the components up front but the rear speakers are "fill" sound so doing components in the rear will be more trouble than they are worth. as for leaving the stock head unit, i would highly recommend that you go aftermarket. if you don't there will be at least 20 t-taps in your harness. as for the other questions sorry i do not know the access cabs well enough.

    OR your could buy 2008 rear door panels, 08's have the speakers in the doors and not in the ceiling.
