Touchscreen question for model year 08

08 Ford Explorer Sport Trac.

Would I be able to put a touch screen (the newer Fords come with) in the dash to replace its current radio? The area is large enough to accomodate the screen. But, wondering if Sync, line-in, Sirius would still work? Does GPS run off of a different antenna or use the same thing Sirius uses?

Anyone know when Ford started putting the touchscreens in? I imagine all the accessories would connect right up to it, if I get the type Ford uses.

Will not work. The vehicle wiring is usually different. Had a guy try it on a f-150 and he gave up. If you want those features easiest to buy an aftermarket head unit.

My truck has those features minus GPS. Just wondering if it was possible to switch over to the touchscreen.
