Default 2013 speaker upgrades

2013 sport here w/ Alpine system. I want to replace most of the speakers and it sounds like the Kicker 77kick42 is what I need to change the front doors and 3 dash speakers...can anyone confirm this?
I see many references to this but most of what I read are for previous years. Assuming they're the same but I need to be sure.

Also, which kicker set do I need to replace the back speakers?

Thanks

I installed Infinity Reference 3032cf Front Dash Speakers (2) removed the center speaker (just unplugged it)

Added the GTO-501EZ Subwoofer Mono 500 Watt Amp W/Remote connected to the OEM subwoofer.

I haven't changed the door speakers.

I am happy with the sound now.

Are you pulling the entire Alpine system out, or just the speakers?

Just starting with the front speakers including the front doors. May do the rear doors afterward.
Sub/amp can come out later down the road.
I like the Kicker pkg's and I really doubt the sound quality difference between a manufacturer such as infinity and Kicker are all that much different. Generally speaking I bet the Kicker's are a huge improvement over the OEM Alpine's in these trucks. I just wanted to be sure the 77Kick42 set would be the simple plug and play swap I'm seeing they are on earlier years.

Yes, they are a huge upgrade, they are very similar to the KS lineup, just come setup to plug into the factory speaker plugs. The sub/amp combo is the biggest upgrade, as the Alpine has a 150 watt 8", versus a 200+ watt 10" sub.
I drove our OEM 2014 Silverado from Oklahoma to Vegas for SEMA, and that 10" works perfect in a 4 door truck!

Graygoose, on another note... how were you able to fit all of your mods in your signature? I've been trying and it constantly tells me I can't have more than 100 characters. I didn't count yours but it sure looks like more than 100 to me.

It may increased since I paid my yearly dues, see my name is green...maybe thats why.
Huge benefit, it also gets rid of the annoying pop up ads, etc.
