Yeah, absolutely.. if you get a decent pair of components for the front. If that doesn't satisfy, then you can add an amp/dsp/sub later on. I was satisfied with the sound quality enough without adding an amp/dsp but I did add a subwoofer. If you want to get decent bass without adding a sub then you'll need to stick with 6x9 components, I've heard the morels are really good.

Excellent, thank you very much for your response. This will be my first truck where I actually put some money into mods and, while I enjoy the stock sound a lot, it would be nice to enjoy it even more as I'm almost always listening to music.

I got these for the fronts:
Infinity Kappa 693.11i
And these for the rear:
Morel Maximo Coax 6

Much better than stock. May add a sub down the line.

I usually recommend to stick with the same Model/Make line between all speakers for optimal blending but maybe that's just me. I'm sure there are mixes out there that sound just fine.

Yes but with this caveat, do not get a speaker that is power hungry. I did and I ended up adding an amp and doing a lot more work and spending a lot more money. Some modest speakers will give you want sound wise, but if they are too power hungry, you'll feel that you'll want more volume and that's a whole another can of worms. I bought some real nice speakers but they were power hungry. That lead to an $500 amp and doing some FORscan mods and that is the
short version. The long version is a thread on here.

Yes, that is a good point I forgot to mention. Speakers with higher sensitivity levels will perform better with less power.
