2014 Overland - Remove CD player

Does any one know if you can unplug and remove the cd player from the centre console? Comes standard on this model and i dont use it. Id assume as its an option on lower models, that the player is just added to the console, so there is a good chance that there wont be a gaping hole when its removed.

CD player is optional on all trim levels. There is an excellent "how to" on removal of the player and replacing it with the non-cd equipped console on one of the other forums.

Yup, the CD is not "standard", but dealers may have ordered stock with it installed. The article that the previous poster mentioned also includes the parts requirement to give you back a "normal" center console, if I recall. Just removing the CD leaves you with a big hole under the lid...

I want to remove mine also, as I didn't want the single CD and it is a waste of space in the center console for me personally.

When I get to it, plan to remove the CD player.

The CD option on the MY14 JGC takes up a substantial portion of the entire center console that would normally be available for storage and convenience. While a few folks out there consider it a "must have", a larger number of folks have gone to other formats of storing content, such as on SD cards or on their portable devices, such as smartphones. So when they buy a JGC "off the lot" (or mistakenly ordered it with the CD option), they may want to remove it. But again, if that decision is made, there are some parts that need to be ordered to replace the CD unit so that the console can be used "normally".

I am possibly interested in going the other way...ADDING a CD player to our 2014 JGC. Anyone know if a wiring harness is already run and ready, or will adding the CD require fishing the wires and hooking them up to the UConnect head?

Sounds like you may be able to get the required parts secondhand from folks who don't want the CD player.... Probably a lot cheaper than buying new parts from the dealer.

I was worried about no CD when we ordered our Overland.
Then I learned how to put every CD I own on a 8 gig Thumbdrive with room to spare.
CCR and Buddy Holley and some early Sun Records doesn't take up much room.
