I put Pioneer 3 way 6x8's (bought them at Wally world) in my truck and it sounds much better. It does need a sub of some type to give it the lower range of audio. Still trying to figure out where to put one in mine.

JL Audio!!

Put 2 JL 10W3s behind the rear seat, MB quart highs and mids in doors and in rear, JL 500/1 for subs and 450/4 for highs and mids. Not over the top but plenty for most.

Start with new speakers and go from there. If you want more, then add a sub.

Just because I kiss the prettiest girls and I drive my truck too fast, why does everybody want to kick my @ss?

If you can, put 6 1/2 component speakers in the doors instead of 6x8's. This would be a 6 1/2 mid woofer and a tweeter in each door. They sound SO much better, huge difference. Component speakers cost a little more than 2 way/3 ways, but they are worth it. Your head unit should power them fine, but an amp would really sound good. The 6 1/2 fit right in, but you will have to find a close by spot for the tweeters and built-in crossovers.

On a side note, if you want to upgrade your speakers or just have better sound from your old ones, use a sound deadener product on/in your doors. A product like Fatmat, Dynamat, Second Skin, etc will really make a HUGE difference. I just removed my door panels and added Fatmat behind the speakers and everywhere I could. Awesome results!!! The bass difference and volume clarity is HUGE. Best $90.00 mod I've done to the truck. The sound is literally a night and day in comparision. You won't be dissappointed. Either way you choose good luck.
