I just installed the radio, satellite receiver, and satellite antenna
on my son's 95 Explorer. Since you already have the "Sirius Ready"
radio you only have to install the satellite receiver and run the
wire up to dash. Satellite ready only means your head unit will
accept another source, namely a satellite unit. Ensure the cabling
from the satellite receiver to the head unit uses a compatible
connector. I placed the receiver under the larger rear seat, bolting
it to the floor. The antenna must be outside. I hot glued it right
at the center back, routing the wires in the hatch back molding.
