Yes you can put speakers there, I have 6.5" in mine. Just have to make sure the mounting depth of the speaker isn't too deep.
I fit 6x9s in mine. They just barely fit. Depth was no problem on mine.
I also put 6.5" in mine. The dash speakers are 4".
thank ya thank ya
what did yall use to cut the holes...
I drilled a hole in mine with a step bit that went to 1 1/4 so I could see in, then cut with a cordless jigsaw. Be careful, the wires going to done light and maybe brake lights? Is back there, I think that was on driver side. I taped them out of the way while cutting. If u go 6x9, check top and bottom hight, they just barely fit between the belt area and whatever metal was above the speaker.
I used a big hole saw
Speakers should come with a template. I would try to stick with a basic size speaker incase you ever have to replace one or both and have a strange size hole to recut for replacement speakers. Also get some insulation to fill in the post area behind the speaker. Probably will help the sound not be so hollow. I also am not sure if your seatbelts on that year will bang your speakers after time. Something to think about.
