i just changed all my speakers in my ext cab. i believe the fronts were actually 6'' and the back were 6x8 but that was with premium sound, not sure if that changes anything.

Is there such a thing as 6x8? In any event, they sure don't stamp the cab differently based on radio options; it must be set up to take multiple sizes.

6x8 are definitly out there. I know for a fact 6.5" didn't fit in my front doors. As I originally brought 6.5 and they didn't fit.

That's why I asked if there was such a thing as 6x8. 6x9 has been around since the days when disco sucked; the were the standard sedan rear shelf size for decades. But the screw hole spacing is different from 5x7, IIRC. Don't see how they'd interchange.

Edit - well I'll be dipped! Go to Crutchfield and plug in our gen of truck, and there are several 5x7 AND 6x8 (yes, 6x8) speakers for the rear. Look closely at the mounting holes and you'll see how they do it. Fronts were all 6.5"; there are probably some 6" speakers with extended flanges that fit vehicles that take 6.5s.
