I have a ranger but it has the same exact speakers in it. I'm going with 6 1/2" components and just making an adapter out of mdf. Much better sound out of round speakers and opens up your options a lot more. Just something to think about.

if you must have 6x8 components, alpine did make type r 6x8's a few years back.

you should probably measure the speaker cutout in the door first and go from there, (cardboard or something) ;)

your stock speakers can be your adapter template. trace, cut, measure for new speaker.

I've always used the stock speakers and traced around them on 1/4 or 3/8 MDF to make a template....It works great :)
