Yes, your dash is designed for it, plus they used to make full double din bezels (without the little half round cutouts for knobs) designed to go around the MyGig.

I have the same truck as you and yes you can buy a new bezel to put the full size touchscreen in but there actually quite expensive.

as for the subs you have a handling rms watts and a peak rms watts. what you want to do is look at an amp that can double to be right in between the handling and peak. for example: a 400 watt amp can really produce 800 watts at max potential. you don't want to stress your subs though so if they are bottoming out turn it down.

also remember if your amp is set at 500 watts (example) and your pushing 2 subs, its only pushing 250 to each sub. theres also impedance and a bunch of other technical stuff but this is just the basics of it.

I have the polk mm 1040 10 inch subs and I love them, plenty of airspace. and the most important thing to remember is airspace and the quality of the box makes a HUGEEE impact on how everything will sound.

good luck, I hope this helps
