Upgrading speakers in Lariat

I am doing some stereo work for my 2012 Lariat. Along with adding subs, I am looking to replace the front and rear speakers. My truck has components front and rear.
When upgrading, do most of you stick with f/r component sets, or components up front, and drop down to coaxial in the rear?

Do ya'll have better luck with 5x7/6x8 or 5.25" in these locations?

Looking at doing Kicker KS525 components front and rear.
I run the coaxial version of these in my Jeep and I like them a lot.
They seem to be hard to beat for the price. I would love to do a set of JL components, but they are significantly more than I want to spend.

I just installed Kicker Coax and left the front tweeters alone. Much better than the plastic junk that came out of the truck. I also have the JL Audio stealthbox so i was really only looking for mids and highs. Base is covered.

i have Focal access component 6.5 in my 2002 f250, a little dremel work and its a better sound or u can buy plates that make the 6.5 work on the 6x8 spots, ill most likely be just adding coaxial with built in tweeters to my 11, also another good small amp is the rockford fosgate pbr300.4 its nice and small with great output

I'd go for boston accoustic. I've had em in my truck for 10 years. They play ridiculously clear, crisp, and loud! But then again, i do have a McIntosh amplifier.... haha!

I'm looking at replacing the door speakers in my 2011 as well without having to add any extra amplifier to them, is there a decent speaker thats an upgrade without adding extra power? also what size are the door speakers? hope I'm not hijacking this thread
