Im looking for a new head unit and am pretty much dead set on the alpine 9886 but i cant get a straight answer of whether or not its USB built in out of the box? I really wanna run my mp3 player to it (not an iPod) but im not trying to pay for the usb add on or whatever.

It has a female USB cord, so a flash drive plugs right in. ;)

It has a USB dongle type thing on the back, you will need an extension cable to be able to access it once it is installed. Get an extension off of ebay or somewhere so you aren't paying 30 bucks for one and you will be good.
If you are running an external hard drive though you need to make sure the cable is as short as possible.
