    i think i put 5-1/4's in mine. but it's been awhile, not 100% positive. just measure the screen on the bottom of the door. there's quite a noticeable size difference between 5-1/4 & 6-1/2, even on a tape measure.

    i was told they are 6.5 inch or 5 1/4 i want a positive answer so when i go to the store i don't need to guess on whether I've bought the right ones.

    I looked it up on Crutchfield.com, and it looks like you might be able to use either size 5 1/4 or 6 1/2. On Answers.com, one reply said that for the larger speakers you'll have to use the speaker mounting bracket that comes with the speaker, or screw it directly into the metal in the door...

    back in april i picked up some nice pioneer speakers for my truck, 6 3/4 for my front doors. Pioneer TSA1782R, so far they have been great!

    hope it helps..

    6.5" will fit and give you better midbass than the 5 1/4". Also, be careful on the depth of the speaker. It could hit the window. If you need to, you can space it out about 1/4". If you have to go anymore you will have to trim the back of the door panel where the metal grille is so that it does not come it contact with the speaker when the put it back on.

    6.5" is the correct size as said. Just installed some JL seprates in my 98 Dually, they sound so good and fit great.

    I put 6.5" component MBQuart's in my OBS '99 ( a 1998 for all practical purposes.) Sound was great with the tweet in the factory pillar location.

    Most of the screw holes lined up no problems.
