Default Missing rear speaker mounts

Ive got a 99 B2500 base model that came only with the front speakers. Today I bought some Infinity 5x7's for the front and went to install the stock ones in the empty spots in the rear. I took the rear covers off and there is NOTHING to mount the speakers to. WTF? What am I supposed to do with nothing? The Infinity's sound so damn good that I am probably just going to get a bass tube or a sub in a truck box, but I can't believe here is nothing there. What have you guys done in this situation? I thought of just letting the magnets stick to the rear of the cab, but lets be real, they would slide around over bumps.

the cover looked like it may handle a 6x9, but my 5x7's fit inside.

No holes in the metal, I take the rear covers off and I see the back of the cab. NOTHING!

+1 on they mount to the inside of the speaker grilles. I may be wrong but I think the correct size is 6x8

6x8 would fit I bet, but my new Infinity's sound so damn good that I would be happy with a 10" bass tube.
