3.5" in the dash is simple. Little bit of trimming but not hard just make sure you get a 3.5" that the tweeter doesn't stick too far up on. For the 6.5" in the doors just trace the factory speaker on a piece of 3/4" mdf cut a hole in the center for the 6.5 then cut out the panel and mount it where the factory speaker was, mount your new 6.5 to that and your good to go. Not a hard project I do them at work all the time takes me a out 30 min to do mids and tweeters in the front of a tundra if you have never done it before it still won't take more than a couple hours.

I had planned on doing a bi-axial mount with my components and sticking tweeters with the 6.75 in the door, however after reading issues about doin 3.5 in dash I figured I would stick tweeter in dash first and if I don't like it worry about it later as less people have issues with tweeters in dash as 3.5's in dash do...

This is from what I read.
You could do what I did, I have the focal 165 vr3 set. It is quite a pita to put the 4" in the dash but the sound is amazing. I run the 6.5" in the door, the tweeters in the sail ( I bought factory limited grills) and the 4" in the dash. The reason the 3.5" usually screw up the sound being in the dash is because most people run a co axial and tweeters sound really harsh playing off the glass and tend to over power everything. But running my midrange up there has really improved the soundstage and I absolutely love it. I have done the same thing for a few customers but used the hertz 3 way component set and for a DIY I would strongly recommend them be ause the mid is smaller the focal 4" was a pain but totally worth the effort.
