Help - connecting MP3 players to the in-dash radio head unit

Hi,

I've just bought Ford Explorer 2002 XLS with its factory made in-dash
radio/CD.

I'm interested to find a way to connect my MP3 player to this head unit
without using FM transmitter. As far as I've seen there is no Auxiliary
or line-In input in the head unit, so what exactly do I suppose to do?

Should I replace completely the head unit with one that has an
Auxiliary input with it?

Any other ideas?

Thanks,
