Default Stereo upgrade help

Looking to upgrade my stock system in my 04 Crew cab. After looking on crutchfield I am not sure what to choose. I want to have Bluetooth capability with front/rear inputs. I am no way near an audio expert. I think I would like to upgrade the speakers as well.
Any suggestions???

I'd call Crutchfield. They have been very helpful to me. As far as inputs front/back, You can probably use Bluetooth f0r music from your phone and so only need USB. I routed my USB cable down to my console (or yo can put it in your glovebox). I have two cars with Kenwood Excelon receivers and like them a lot.

I was very happy with my Kenwood when I had it. Easy to bypass the DVD by grounding it also.

You can talk with Crutchfield via phone, text and or email. I found them to be very helpful. I purchased the head unit from them and they provided vehicle specific instructions and all necessary materials. The installation took a matter of minutes after pre-assembling the harness they provided.
For speakers, I went to Amazon and purchased Infinities with tweeters.
