throttle body 93 explorer

Help ! Ford doesn't have a replacement for a throttle body on my '93 explorer. A number of online sites don't stock them either. Can anyone steer me in a good direction?

And most I found on Car-part.com were in the neighborhood of 50 bucks!

A search of Car-part.com for 93 Ford Explorer reveals prices of $150- $175 for used parts Fordparts.com lists new for $178 I believe.

I didnt MEAN to post that visceral reply until I finished my GOOGLE search on your posts...
Which quickly reveal that you arent a shill!
As it is, my own foot is well up my arse.
Let that be a lesson to ya' kids!
But I still dont understand how you got that cost for a used throttle body

I don't claim to be an automotive expert, far from it. Maybe I did an incorrect search? The only reason I replied to the OP is that I new of this other outfit Fordparts.com and found they had the part he couldn't find. On my search of car-parts.com I only looked at one page not realizing there were many more :-(. Anyway what I looked at is here:
