Would like your suggestions please

Hi to all. Name is Jack and am new to this forum. I'm looking for anyone's suggestions on car stereos for my truck. I have read a lot of topics on car stereos and I am overwhelmed with the information. From what I can tell stereos are all the same really. Just cant figure out which ones are better for USB, smartphone. The music I listen to is smooth Jazz (primarily), old school heavy metal, hard rock and new age stuff. I do not listen to much else than that. I have a 2002 Chevy 1500HD crew cab that currently has no radio in it. The OEM radio crapped out years ago and have not replaced it and the two front speakers went out long ago also.

What interest me is a unit with touch screen instead of tiny buttons and *****. Prefer playing music from files off of a USB or ipod/smartphone no CDs so Mechless would be a better unit. I have read that streamed music sounds inferior to music off of the usb or ipod so not really interested in xm capability either. So what I would like is your thoughts on what components I need for a stereo system: two front door speakers (6.5s), two rear door speakers (6x9s) and a small amp and maybe a small sub (10" or less) or do I need one? Also any other little gadgets that I would need like cables or phone holder. Also where do you store your ipod? Glovebox? Thanks for reading, I know you guys are asked this a lot.
