help with wiring/unwiring DTRL

Hey guys. I know this is not a new topic but after searching the site and google I have not found a resolution to a fairly unique situation. The setup to this is that I purchased my taco from the states to drive in Canada. DTRL are mandatory here so as part of the import the DTRL are hardwired. To make it more interesting, I had a company do the import for me which cost me money but I didn't have to do anything but pick it up at a dealership in Vancouver. Saved money..........which is now biting me in the ass a bit.

Actual issue: the headlights have been hardwired as DTRL. THis is burning out my PIA bulbs almost every year. I have looked behind the fuse box and it has not be installed anything like what you guys suggest within the TW forum. I have attached a couple pics of what it looks like back here and I'm not even sure its this side of the firewall that I should be looking. Anyone out there an electrician that can lend a hand? much thanks

PS the last photo is from a couple weeks ago just to pull on some heart strings

PPS I have this bumper in my shop ready when my truck has less dents in it
