Question Stock radio and Amp?

I am thinking about adding an amp to power all the speakers in my PT, but I am keeping the stock radio. I am going to be changing out the door/dash and rear speakers, I also have the Mopar sub. I have seen 5 channel amps that look like they would work for this... Has anyone done this or something similar?

Thanks,

Most amps have speaker level inputs, which make up for the lack of pre-amp outputs on your stock head unit.

I got an Alpine mrx-v60 5 channel amp to drive the entire system. It was the only amp I could find that really fit what I wanted to do. It was also a bit more money than I wanted to spend as well...
However it does sound pretty good!
I also have some Boss Audio component speakers in the front and 2 ways in the back. While they are cheap speaker they sound pretty good. I am also running the stock sub in the MOPAR box. I still need to tweak the settings a bit more but overall I am happy with it.

Spend 100, spend 1000, as long as you're happy with it that's all that matters.
