Grand Cherokee 5.9L audio upgrade

I'm looking to upgrade the stereo and speakers in my 5.9 because I have to leave the bass all the way down or else the radio lights flicker and the speakers sound like they're gonna put a hole in the doors. I need your opinions on what I was looking for:

Head Unit: Pioneer DEH-P6200BT CD Receiver with Built-In Bluetooth Pioneer DEH-P6200BT CD Receiver with Built-In Bluetooth - eBay (item 170524497539 end time Sep-07-10 01:02:46 PDT)

Front components: INFINITY 6.5" KAPPA 60.9CS

Rear 2-way: Infinity Kappa 62.9i

I am also gonna "borrow" one of my brother-in-law's 10" subs and his amp (since he's not using them )

What do you guys think of this setup? Anything you would change? Is there a way to upgrade the stock amp without rewiring the whole truck?

you are going to need an amp for those speakers. the 60.9's are 90w and the 62.9's are 75w. that deck only puts out 14wRMS and that is NOT going to make those speakers sound like they should.

One thing I have found with the older cherokees is the doors have horrible accoustics. You can put amazing speakers in but it might not nessisarily sound as good as it can. I HIGHLY recommend putting Dynamat on at least the doors. You will not only hear huge sound quality improvement and better response from your speakers, but the road noise will be cut down too. You can go as far as putting it on the floor and rear side panels, but that can get pricey and not really needed unless you really want to cut down the road noise. Also as stated before, you'll either need an amp for the speakers, or a better head unit that puts out more watt's. A decent one should be around 55watts x 4.
