    The stock door speakers are 5x7 or 6x8 (they are the same size), for your budget I would reccomend coaxials running off the h/u. For subs I had 3 jl10w0's, good with low power and accurate, plenty loud as well if you're not looking for extreme spl, and a shallow mounting depth as well. You will probably need to build a box if you want the best sound, though there are a few out there, depending on what cab you have. For a subwoofer amp you need to choose the subs first, and match their ohm ratings to those on the amp. You will only need one amp, probably a 1 or 2 channel around 600-800w, depending on how you want to wire the subs, and you don't need a capacitor. For a h/u you don't need anything special, one set of pre-outs is enough, just make sure you get one with a subwoofer contol (rather than just bass/mids/treble), as it can be annoying with subs. Most lower end pioneers have it, while the lower end kenwoods do not. Send me a pm if you have any questions, my truck is the same as yours and I'll be happy to help if I can. BTW, I have bought some of my stuff on e-bay, but have found that has competitive prices, and you don't have to deal with bids, etc.
