It's possible. The real secret lies in finding a blend door servo that can work. If you ignore for a moment the fact that a 93 doesn't have an OBD2 vehicle network for the unit to talk to, you can get most of the functionality of it but it won't be quite as "smart".

I believe there's either an F-150 or Expedition EATC that was available. Will the servo from that mount and operate your blend door? If you can answer that, then the rest is mere details - power, fan controller, and sensor hookups that are somewhat independent of the model.

I think the EATC offered in the Expidetion was in the newer ('96+) dash. The '93 has the older style dash. I don't think from my experience with working on a '94 F-150 that there is much room behind the stock HVAC panel.

The EATC unit is about 6" deep. If your truck has cable operated deflectors, then you would need to modify a lot to get an EATC to work.
