How much money are you willing to spend? Your front speaker choice is more important than your rears. If you want to use rear speakers, 6x9's are just fine.

I don't care about the money for the speakers just want to match up with what I have now.

If you can, listen to the Boston Acoustics Pro60, Polk Audio SR, or the Alpine Type X.

My 2004 Quad Cab also uses 6 3/4" in the doors but I was able to easily fit 6.5" mid bass drivers in the factory locations, which is good because that makes your speaker choices endless. I mounted the tweeters low in the A pillars facing each other and the staging is very good.

I would get anything to fill the 6x9's to be honest, just get a nice two way component set for the front that will play low, install them properly, tune it properly so they blend well with the subs and you wont miss the rear fill one bit.
I have an 03 Intrepid, very similar interior and I have taken out my 6x9's and glad I did.
