Also do you have any good models out there that will run well with the factory head unit for the time being. I would like a good set because eventually I will be adding an amp
As far as I know, the basic factory amp does not split the signals like the Alpine does, but I canot be sure without messing with it myself. If the speakers currently are receiving a full range signal, you will be fine in swapping out speakers. Best bet is to go to a local audio store and have a listen, see what you like.

If you have the time, take some under dash pics beneath the steering wheel, for I haven't worked on a non Alpine 4th gen yet, I would like to see the wiring.

Hey guys, got some free stuff as described here:

http://www.ramforumz.com/showthread.php?t=75197

My big question is what is the best/easiest way to run new speaker wires to the doors being as there are plug connectors at the kick panels to the door harness?

Best thing is to unplug the molex connector in the door, drill a small hole through it to run the speaker wire. That's how I do it.

If I remember right, you gonna have to get everything out of the way, including the park brake assembly. It's really a pain in the butt to do, but it can be done..

Hey Audio gurus:

I am wiring a backup camera and will be running it into the cab to the Allgig AV harness located behind the stereo.

Where does the wiring outside the truck enter the cab on a 2011 1500 Sport Crew?

Big thanks.

I ended up using the emergency brake grommet located about halfway down the driver's lower sill.
