Re: The Official "I want to remove my '14 CD Player" thread

I won't be removing the cd player. My wife doesn't seem to mind the loss of storage space.

REALLY?!?
WTF was/is Jeep Chrysler thinking?!?



The ONLY reason I haven't ordered my 2014 yet is the Late Availability of the Rear Entertainment DVD/Blueray system! But I didn't realize they had done such a horrible design and placement job!

I personally hate all things iHead (Apple) so an iPad just doesn't apply to me at all. Plus no iPad would be as fully intergrated into all of the vehicle systems as the OEM setup.

Re: The Official "I want to remove my '14 CD Player" thread

All I gotta say is I am SO happy I waited a few extra weeks and initiated a dealer-trade for an Overland that has no CD player (a dealer trade across state-lines, nonetheless).

For a couple weeks there I was in the "I don't care either way" party with the CD player (mainly because all I had on the local lots were Overlands with CD players and I didn't want to wait to take delivery).

That center console storage space is awesome. That's for sure.


Oh, and they need to fire those engineers and the VP that approved that setup - ASAP.

Re: The Official "I want to remove my '14 CD Player" thread

does anyone know if a Dealer can remove the CD player and put the storage bin back in? There is a Summit on a lot that I am considering but it has the CD player that I do not want. I thought I would ask before I schlep to the dealer and see what they say...

Re: The Official "I want to remove my '14 CD Player" thread

I have to wonder, did the dealers just blindly order them with the CD Players in place without actually checking to see where the players were?

What you fail to understand is that jeep actually wanted to remove the CD player all together but knew the back lash would be never ending
So by putting it some were stupid like the center console would see us all calling for its removal.
Why they just did't continue with it behind the radio face i think related to saying money

Re: The Official "I want to remove my '14 CD Player" thread

Hundreds of millions of CDs out there, if not more, played by many millions of people. Also millions of traditional TVs (no flat), land line telephones (no cell), desktop computers (no lap/tablet), and paper maps (no GPS), used by millions. Most of those people do so by choice and quite a few are content to focus on banking for their "million".

I think the screen in the dash is just that. The actual radio/nav system is down below that and is just an electronics box. So I guess as others stated, they had to offer a CD player to avoid hearing lip from customers that want a CD player.

Re: The Official "I want to remove my '14 CD Player" thread

Are there any pics of what the bin looks like with out the CD player? Also, could the CD player be installed later like in the glove box or is there a problem with setting up the radio to recognize it?

Re: The Official "I want to remove my '14 CD Player" thread

Just looked at a 14 Overland today without the CD player. The center console looks just like my 11 GC limited. Planning to order a 14 Overland without the CD. Al

Re: The Official "I want to remove my '14 CD Player" thread

Bumping this old thread to see if anyone has had this annoying thing removed.
In Aus the Laredo is the only car that can come without it.
All other MUST come with this annoying space killer.
I have a Limited I have just ordered and can't for an Aus build get it without the CD player.
There are many more like me that hate this thing with a passion and want it gone.

Any solutions been found in the US where you have had it longer?
