    My question is:

    Can a OEM CD player be added to the RA2 5.0 radio with a dealer flash?

    Yes as lonestar stated it can be added and was an available option with the RA2. My truck came with the RA2 and a CD player. I would recommend going to the dealer to verify before you purchase the CD player just to be sure but the code should be there.

    I also have the CD player but find it somewhat useless. Not because I don't really have CDs anymore, more so because of where it's located. Right below the middle seat. Kinda not the easiest to access lol

    I agree with you on that one. I'm not sure where a better place to put it would be but it is a major pain to get to it where it is now,especially when you're driving.

    Make sure you report after getting the code added at the dealership. I have a center console I picked up with the CD player. Wasn't going to bother with it but if it can be added without having to add wiring. Just a code added at the dealer. I'll do that since I've got it

    if your cd console came with wiring harness just plug the factory grey media plug into the console harness.and you should have power ie lights and a cd will load into the cd player.you just won't have control over it .my dealer charged 65.00 for the flash.i already had a factory floor console no cd and just bought a factory cd harness an a used cd player.

    Yeah, it lights up and will accept a CD, so that's all good. Do You know what the code was by chance?
