Replacing factory door speakers and reciever
So i was going to replace the speakers in my front doors in my 2000 silverado, I'm not quite sure what size i need ive seen 6x9 and 6.5 but not sure and are there any other speakers in my truck that i might replace as well? rear door? i also planned on replacing my receiver because the stock one has no lights working except the time and i would just like to upgrade so i know how to pull the door panels off but other than that is it pretty easy just unscrew and unplug speakers? Im not quite sure on the receiver though, i know you buy a new harness whereever you buy from, im guessing pull the dash trim guard off then pull the old one out and unplug wires and put in new harness and reciever? but im not exactly sure. Thanks in advance!

I can't remember the size for sure but if you go to crutchfield.com and put your truck in the vehicle info it will show you all the decks and speakers that will fit and also ones that will fit with some minor modifying.If you buy from crutchfield you will get instructions I think...
here is how you remove the front and rear doors on an 02...
03-07 is the same exept the window switch comes off differently.

- Piermont,NY, back in Northern NJ now, But may be in IL soon....
As said above.. 6 1/2 and 4x6 in the back.. Good luck... Just remember don't look at speakers that say 200 watts in the back because they will want that much power to sound good. A aftermarket radio will only give you between 18-22 watts Tops.... So you want a speaker that will be fine with 20-30 watts RMS..08 Z71 Avalanche Mods to date: K&N CAI,Hellwig Swaybars and End Links, Corsa Sport Exhaust, Superchips Programer,IPCW LOF & 3rd brake light and tails, AMI Gas door,Show Hooks and Door locks, Enkei Wheels, with Pirelli tires, StreetScene Bowties, Grant Steering wheel,Muth signal mirrors,SSBC Big Brake kit,Huskyliner Mug gards,Floor mats and Hood shield, McGard Lug nuts and locks, Bedrug, Cervini's Ram Air hood,35watt HID Fog lights, Sylvania bulbs all around ZXE's Highs and Lows, WhiteNight Back up lights,Sirius and HD Radio, SnugTop sitting on deck now Got a Softopper on now,Tempress Boat Hatches....

Chevy is much easier to do than fords are, especially head units, the head unit wiring on fords are complete different colored wiring system, very confusing!
