I know this has been said before but can anyone please tell me the best way to incorporate an aux port into my '06 Stang? It has the Shaker 500. I'm looking for the cleanest, easiest possible install. Maybe someone can link me to the product(s) I need. I don't mind if I have to put it in the center console or wherever, the FM transmitters suck.
What do you have to do? Take off the factory head unit and then what?

You can get a double-din aftermarket HU for $130, which will likely sound better than the factory Shaker HU. Lots of threads about folks changing HU and improving the sound. You'll still need a couple of wiring harness adapters and the install kit, but you're left with much more versatility.
Call around to some of your local car audio shops. I took my '06 to a stereo shop and they added an aux input to the factory unit. If I remember correctly (this was 8 years ago) it was less than $50.

I figured out PC Richards will install any deck over $130 for free, just have to pay for the install hardware. I found a nice deck for sale at PC Richards that has good reviews for $150, will charge and play my iPod, touch, and looks nice.
Looking at $200 with the install. Here's the deck:
