I'm on my phone and can't open your link, but if its a double din head unit, you can make it fit with the right trim kit and a dremmel. Search double din installs and you should find some good threads.

What's a double din head unit? :/ I'm sorry I'm not smart with car stuff lol
 






Just kidding I think I know what it is! :)
 






Your link is not working.

A double din is a radio that is twice the size of the small radios you usually see at a store, which are single din.
Touchscreens tend to be double din.
Both will fit in your sport trac with a dash kit.

Ok now I'll just look for the right dash kit
 






If it is a double din that you're getting, you may need to trim/file the dash a bit to squeeze it in. Nothing to major.

will an auto shop do that for me?

A good audio shop should/will.
Don't go to like bestbuy. Go to a place that specializes in car audio.
 






an auto shop will do it, but its really simple and you can save the money on labor and get some speakers if youre brave enough to do it yourself. all you will need is a dremmel or a file (although it will take longer) the radio bezel comes off with two 7mm screws.

this might help:

Premium Factory Sound

Do you have the premium sound and with or without the factory sub?
You can go to this site for all wiring harnesses and dash kits.

My Eclipse D-DIN was super tight, but nothing a file couldn't fix.
