I have 3 questions, Grant...

1. What model speakers are those?
2. How much were they?
3. Did they come with the proper mounts to go directly in place of the old Infinitys?

The 5.9 needs new speakers BAD.

Any 6.5's will drop right in, are you looking for coax's or comps? And are you looking to power them with the stock amp or go with a bit more?

Fitted up my 3 link crossmember, just need to add the upper link mount then it can live on my jeep.

Also, noticed my rear axle spraying diff oil all over my rear hatch. Its looks like its coming from the little box on the axle the the left of the pumpkin. Im pretty sure its where the vent line attaches. Anyone know what that piece is called?

thats the brake line tee/ block, the breather goes into it also, but diff fluid isn't under pressure, so make sure it isnt brake fluid, and if it is it eats paint so be careful.
