    Mine did not. I believe there is a relay setup that runs about $60-$70. Its plug and play if I remember right.

    DRL's; Daytime Running Lights (sometimes called Lamps). Allowed in the US, not required and to be legal must meet DOT specs. Mandatory in Canada and other countries. Some called the acronym DTRL, but all the FSM's I have call them DRL's. Your truck most likely is not equipped with this option, which on most Toyota's is usually packaged with other options, but is sometimes offered as a stand alone option. All the GM, Jeep, and older Toyota FSM's show considerable difference in wiring, controllers, and operation of Canadian and US DRL's, but most are just minor such as high beam h/lamp @ X% reduced voltage, low beam h/lamp at slightly reduced voltage, and the latest; the brightest filament of a parking/turn signal lamp operating constantly, which works but in some cases has short bulb lifespan and melted lamp sockets.

    Your truck can have DRL's added relatively easily, do a search and a lot will pop up. EDIT:; and since I typed so slow it has already appeared
