Cd/DVD Player in 2014-- It's not removable

Does anyone know if the player is removable, or if it's fixed in place?

I've got an option to get it at no additional cost-- so I would get it, but only if I can take it out and get my storage slot back when I want to.

Re: Cd/DVD Player in 2014-- Removable?

Something else I saw today looking at a CD player on a '14 Limited, not only does it eat up about half of the center console storage compartment, it eliminates the upper storage that's in the lid. If you need the space up front, probably a good idea to pass unless you really want the convenience.

Re: Cd/DVD Player in 2014-- Removable?

Once I saw the image of the CD Player taking up 1/2 the center console space, I had my dealer remove it from my order. Looks like I made the right decision.

I didn't know that it removes the upper storage as well. I wish I would have left it off now...

Re: Cd/DVD Player in 2014-- Removable?

Yup - the first MY14 I saw was a Laredo with this option on the dealer floor. I opened up the console and kept pulling up the lid expecting more storage. I was like WTF? With CD player installed, you can barely put anything in there - They almost make you NOT order it.

Re: Cd/DVD Player in 2014-- Removable?

OK Guys, so I'm screwed here. I picked up my new 2014 Overland, Blacked out with 20's, LOVE IT, but I CANNOT stand the damn CD player eating up my center console and causing me to lose my top storage. Does anyone know if I can have it removed and replace the center console and lid cover. I'm willing to spend the money, just cant stand having no storage at all. Any help or guidance anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Cd/DVD Player in 2014-- Removable?

Guys, of course I read the thread. What I'm asking is there anyway for me to buy a new console insert and cover and throw away the CD player, current insert and current cover? I assume the entire center console is stock and they simply change out the insert, add the CD player, and use a different lid. I'm not trying to be difficult here, just looking for a solution to a crappy design flaw.

That you probably be something you would have to ask the dealer and order from them when it becomes available.. Nothing as of right now.
