Installing a Aux input in a Ford Taurus?

I have a 2006 Ford Taurus SE. Recently I’ve been desperately trying to figure out a way to install an mp3 aux port in my car somehow. I have a CD player, so the cassette cable thing that I know you can buy is out the window. For the past year I’ve been using an FM transmitter, which works fairly well if I stay in the city, but if I’m traveling across from city to city it can be pain to be constantly looking for new weak signal stations while I’m driving. I know I can buy a whole new radio kit all together and replace it. I see online that they all now come with Aux inputs now. However, Speed Test Solitaire those get a little pricing and I don’t want to risk my car getting broken into because my car is usually in college town areas.

There were two things I was considering doing to solve my problem. First, my cars antenna and radio receiver is in the back by my trunk. So I’m thinking that maybe I could run the FM transmitter to be sitting literally right next to the radio receiver so it was basically touching it (it’s normally sitting in my cup holder so it’s quite a ways away). I could use an extension cable to plug into the 12v cigarette lighter and run it to the back, and then just run an Aux cable from the FM transmitter to plug in into my iphone up front. I feel like with this the signal will be boost quite a bit if the transmitter is right next to the radio receiver of my car.
