^^this guy is weird. Lol. Jk. I've always had a thing for fog lights, but my ex-wife's dad used to hate it when I drove with them on. " you are gonna burn them out just when you need them ". I keep an extra set of bulbs with me because there is nothing worse than driving around with only one on.

between the Jeep and Life. Lets see where it leads this time......

You have to modify the turn signal bulb. There are two steel wires that come down the plastic piece of the bottom of the bulb. Cut one of them off completely. Done. No more running lights.

So did my 06 originally come with daylight running lights? Mine are not working if they did.

My 07 doesn't have DRLs but I run the parking lights (ambers) and fogs 100% of the time.
