    I'd been wanting to have DRL on my truck (2004), was told 007Tacoma's way was only for 2nd Gens & wasn't crazy about the cheap/easy mod. I found this link on TN www.webelectricproducts.com and they have a Universal DRL module. It's $40 and it was in my mail box 2 days later. Here's a pic of what comes with it

    The instructions were very easy to follow. I put the module behind the driver side headlight & ran the wiring in 3/8" wire loom to the turn signals. I also used crimp ons instead of wire nuts for a more positve connection.

    Here's the end result.

    Is it just me, or are the photos not 'working'?

    When you get in your truck just turn your headlights on. Instant DRL. Don't worry I won't charge you for this one.

    The pics should show up now. I did a copy/paste & thought they showed up. Guess not.

    Just curious ... Why'd you use the turn signals for the DRL's and not the corner marker lamps? Have you done the corner blinker mod?

    This is what looks the best to me. You know, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
