    5x7 and 6x8 uses the same mounting so it should fit. I still prefer round speakers myself over oval. So I run 6.5 components all around.

    depends if front or rear. rear should be no issues, front is more shallow and only certain ones will fit

    Check out Crutchfield.com. It will tell you what fits and where. They're a little high on price but service / support are second to none. Also provides you part numbers to reference if you want to shop anywhere else.

    yeah that is where I got the info on the speakers, I just looked at Amazon to see if a bit cheaper then crutchfield. I agree crutchfield is amazing when it comes to customer service.

    I might go with the oval ones.

    Thanks guys!

    I can do that, I just don't want to have the tweeter look dumb on the front doors. I wonder if there is any tweeter housings that would fit on the top of the door by the mirror.

    I have a 6.5" Focal V2 polyglass component system all around in my truck with Rockford amps pushing them. They were expensive but have lasted for 10 years. They are great!!! I would go with a component system

    Thanks guys. I had focal components in a show car that I had, loved them and they were amazing. I am trying to stay a bit inexpensive, but I know that you get what you pay for.
