Default 4.0l sohc thermostat housing swap?

Did a search but didn't find anything. I have a 04 4.0l sohc, with sensors held in by o-rings and clips, would it be possible to swap to an older style housing, say for a 2000 4.0 sohc for an Explorer, with screw in sensors? I am tired of constantly having to replace sensor/orings due to cold weather coolant leaks. Figured a screw in sensor is less likely to leak

if the housing is the same I don't see why not. Only thing you'd have to worry about is the sensors be different.

Yeah, that's looks like that might be the only issue. I know the 2 sensors on my 04 are the same part #, I'll have to see if the screw in sensors would plug into my harness
