No they are really simple to put in the hardest part is pulling a corner of the headliner loose to wire it and figuring out which gromet you want to pass the wire through the fire wall for the ambient air temp sensor. The best place to find one would be either a junk yard or the classified section here. If you get one from a junkyard make sure you get the right sensor for the display.

You can try ebay.
create a want to buy ad here on FRF classified
www.car-part.com search all salvage yards in your state.
just stay away from the sun roof model.

Anyone from a 95-2000 explorer will work.

Buy your OHC from Clinton. He'll treat you right and give you a fair price on it.

All you need is wires to connect it to.

The OHC has the electronics
