The stock base model speakers are the same quality as the stock manual shifter bracket. It took me 1/2 day to replace all 4 and since I did them all at once I can't say if doing just the fronts would be enough but the extra $100+ and time was well worth it to me. I'll say again there is/will be more of an improvement replacing speakers than the head unit.

To me it's personal preference. I would rather hear the music "surround sound" than just from up front and that's why I changed out all four of mine and what a huge difference it made. Actually, it's not that big of a pain to swap out the rear speakers, it's just time consuming.

And I might change out the rears soon. I've done a couple of trucks and after watching a youtube video it appears its about the same type of job. Removing top seat belt bolts, rear panels, etc. Like you said just time consuming. I've also swapped out an entire interior on a fox body before so its gotta be easier than that!

Tearing down the rear interior is actually not that bad once you are familiar with it. There are some great YT and pictorial tutorials. I've done it a few times and with that experience i can pull the rear interior in about 15-20 minutes. Once you get to the speakers, It takes just as long, if not longer to maneuver a ratchet under the rear glass to do the actual speaker swap.
