On the 1996 ford explorer there is a factory installed amp in the left rear quarter panel in which you have to bypass to get any sound from the speakers while using an aftermarket deck

Easiest and smartest way would be to get plugs from any sterio shop.these plugs wire to the radio and plug directly to the factory harness
