Default Looking to upgrade sound system in my 2010 xl

Just purchased an XL super cab and would like to upgrade the sound system. I would like to purchase a used system but am not sure how to tell which systems are compatible. Any advise is appreciated.

just get a single din head unit, then go to a stereo place and get the adapter, its not very hard to install, and it gives you a little extra bay to put things.

Stock speakers are 6x8's. You can look on Craigslist and Ebay to find a headunit. Pretty much any headunit you want, will fit. You can just go to Wal-Mart and get the install kit. You might not be able to find the wiring harness there though. If they don't have it, you can order it off Ebay or something for pretty cheap. Also, 5x7's will fit with no problems. If you have any questions about speakers or installation feel free to PM me.
