cheapest/easiest way to add an ipod to an 03 Ex

Just want to add an input to plug in my ipod.

What have you guys done? Should note, no cassette player, so that route is out.

Same problem Im running into with my 06...I plan on re-doing my whole stero system anyway but I think the only way to do it is replace the head unit with one that has an audio input jack...

Forgot to say you can get a connector that runs it through the radio on a station that isnt used like 88.1 or something like that but the audio quality isnt as good is if you get the actual input on a head unit...

Do later HU fit, retain the rear seat and DVD controls? I know later Ford HU have the aux input on the front. If I could go that route, that would be great.

a raido "tuner" is what I have, once I get a new stero I will have an aux input. Let us know what you find though. I dont like my tuner/radio thing.

What this nation needs is cleaner thoughts and dirtier fingernails...

I got a thing for our 07 Escape, but it is universal. Alpine makes this unit and its a box that plugs in series with the vehicle antenna. Has an input for the stock truck antenna that normally plugs into the radio. And has an output that now goes into the antenna hole in the radio. Then there's a cord that comes off that I ran into the glove box that has the ipod connector on it. Tune the radio in to 1 of the settings you can pick on the unit, which doesn't have a station that picks up. Something like 88.3 or 88.7. And you can hear the ipod songs through your factory radio or whatever you have, just have to still operate the ipod through itself and not through the radio. I hope all that made sense, it was real similar to hooking up satellite radio.
