Removing the seatbelt bracket is actually quite easy. A T-50 bit on a ratchet is all you need; assembly comes off and then pull off the pillar cover. Done. remove speaker with a phillips screwdriver and replace.
When you put the bolt back in, you can put some loctite on it, but I wouldn't recommend it. Just torque it to spec and you're good.

The rear panel is held with simple spring steel or plastic clips. Some firm pressure around the edges (don't yank it) will pop it off.

The factory uses some thread locker, you just need to break that and it's fine.

I just replaced my rear speakers in my regular cab too. The seatbelt bolt was pretty tight but I eventually balled up to give it just enough force it needed without stripping it. The panel is held in with clamps. Check out my video to help you install yours. They sound great!

There's wire adapter harness's available Aggie that make the speakers plug-n-play now,with no cutting or soldering to the factory wire harness.
If you buy the spreakers through Crutchfield the adapter harness's are included with your speaker purchase.
He never does put the factory interior trim panel back on in the video though.
I'm swapping my 6.5" Kickers to the same speakers as in the video,wait a week or so,and i'll be able to tell you if the factory interior panel fits over them

That sounds good. The main reason I want to get to the speakers is that I'd like to tap them for the signal to install my Kicker Hideaway under the drivers's seat and thought this would be the easiest but have seen some posts on this and another forum saying that the rear speakers dont get a "full" signal and you should tap the door speakers. That sounds a bit odd to me. While I have them out doing the splicing for the signal for the Hideaway I may as well go ahead and do this upgrade.
