I have replaced my front door speakers with the Kenwood KFC-6969IE.
The front doors of our rigs take 6x9 speakers, but the depth is limited, so you have to make sure the magnets aren't too big. Otherwise you would have to make some spacers out of MDF. The rear doors take 5 1/4" speakers. Door panel removal is simple.
There are cutouts for 3 speakers under the dash panel. Two of them are for 3 1/2" speakers and the center speaker is a 2 1/2" speaker opening. The top of the dash snaps off, but make sure you wrap the screwdriver with a cloth or some tape so you don't scratch it. Mine did not have the wiring since I didn't get the optional 7 speaker stereo. Running wires wouldn't be too hard though.
Check out the thread below for some more info.

well thanx Dan, i went with the Kenwood KFC-6969IE speakers. I was looking at them at Best Buy, $89... i wasn`t sure if i was gonna go with a more powerfull system (amp, woofer, components, blah,blah) so i wasn`t sure of spending the $100 bucks, only to change them out later. Then i saw them on EBAY, picked them up, brand new in box $29....WOW:D Now even if i change them , its not a big deal. But i do gotta say much better than the stock speekers.
i can crank my system louder now, with a more crisp sound. you hear all the bass, pluss the high notes as well. Installation was done in less than 20 minutes. i saw your post on panel removal, transfered the plastic ring to the new speakers, and they were done.:)
