Here is the info from crutchfield
But yes it is 5.25 all around. And it seems you could go a little bigger in the rear.

yeah... I have an 01... with the speakers up along the roof in the back... you can definitely put 6.5's up there. The 6.5's I have stuffed up there are some of the biggest 6.5's that you could possibly buy, and although not easy, they did get stuffed in there (most of the problem was weight, not size). I had to return the matching pair of 5.25's for the front because they were way too big to fit into the front. With that said, you need a small(er) sized 5.25 for the front and virtually any size 6.5 for the rear. I bought my speakers from 6th Ave. and they had 5.25's all around in the computer too for some reason. I think it was a mistake that older cherokees had 5.25's.

be careful drilling and screwing into the rear hatch though, its fiberglass and screws pull throuh like crazy. i don't know how you mounted your 6.5s because they didn't have that on my xj. use some sort of plasic fastener to get them to hold.

yeah... on the ceiling mounts there is basically a plastic mold. Small speakers could probably be just drilled in and it would hold. Mind were so heavy that I actually used two bolts on each and then, like you said, screws that went into fasteners. Then I couldn't put the stock speaker grills on afterwards, and had to use the aftermarket ones. This is not typical of most 6.5 inch speakers though. Previosly I had Boston Acoustic 6.5's and they fit up easily. JL TR series 6.5 would have sit up there nicely too, but I have these big, heavy Alpines... they are the top coaxials that Alpine makes and they are massive.

I highly recommend the JL TR series... they are actually the cheapest JL's made, but they have won sound competitions when it comes to actual clarity... they are also easily mounted as their magnets are not too big.
