SkiRideDrive is on a distinguished road

So after doing some more research, it seems I have a few options.

For the dash.
It seems like I could either go with Kicker DS35 ($32) or Polk DB 351 ($70).

For the doors.
I could try to stuff Kicker DS693 6x9 3 ways in ($80 f/ $80 r). They should fit right in the rear but the fronts will take some custom modification to make work from what I've read. I'd rather avoid cutting up my new truck.

I could go with Polk Audio db65q 6.5" circular 2 ways (effectively $75 f/ $75 r). These were recommended by the Crutchfield rep.

Or, I could go with the Kicker DS525 5.25" Circular 2 ways ($48 f/ $48 r).

These prices are all off crutchfield. I would like to improve sound over stock for minimal investment. Any thoughts? Should I be paying most attention to sensitivity since the stock head unit only puts out 20W RMS X 4 (at least from my research)? Upgrading amp power may be an option in the future, but for now I would like to keep the factory head unit. If anyone has any ideas for an amp I could run off the stock headunit that wouldn't sound bad, I am all ears.

Thank you!!!
