    Hello,

    Does anyone know why Toyota stop putting the Daytime running lights on the Tacoma's. My 2007 had this feature, my 2011 does not. Or should my 2011 have it and they are not working from factory?

    These lights only light up with the blinkers, they dont even light with regular lights.

    FYI, in the 2009 dealer brochure, DRLs are listed as optional across the board. They were not standard on any model and were not included as part of any package (SR5, TRD, etc.).

    ok....but the lights dont even come on with the parking lights. I have to look at my window sticker I guess to see if it was a option. The only time these lights work is with the blinkers. Can someone tell me if theirs ( NON DRL) at least light up with parking lights or headlights?

    My thinking is that theses should light up with headlights.....

    I don't have them on my '10 TRD OR. Glad I don't ... too many stories of melted lenses. Besides I can always turn on the parking lights or headlights. Since the regular lights already turn off automatically when I shut the engine off and open the door, there's really no chance of leaving them on accidentally. I think of it has having manual DRLs .. on when I want them, off when I don't.

    Ok... I just checked my window sticker...My truck is not equipped with DRL. I find it hard to beilive a company that prides itself on Safety dont even give this as a standard option. Not bashing guys ( 3rd Tacoma purchase) ....just venting.

    With my truck being the MGM.... gray front....gray grill.. black chome factory headlights it kind of blends into the road from a distance.
