Default Speaker Size

This may sound like a really stupid question but I was just wonering if someone can tell me what size of factory speakers are in my truck.
It looks to me like there's 6.5's in the front and 5.25's in the rear.
I just want to make sure of this before I order the incorrect ones.

I just want to change the speakers to someting that sound a little better than factory. I'm on a tight budget right now so i'm just going to be changing those speakers for now and running them off of the factory HU and eventually replacing the HU with something that has built-in XM when they finally release it in canada.

Is it just a matter of switching out the factory speakers or is there more to it than that?

Id go with 6.75"ers if you dont intend on using a mounting bracket.

I used 6.5's in mine in the front and back and didn't use any mounting brackets. I just drilled new holes and put the screws at a angle.

Alright, thanks for the reply's guys.
I just ordered a set over sized 6.5's and they should be here today. Hopefully all goes well and I'll have them mounted tonight yet!
