When you start your truck, just turn the dial "left" once and it should turn the DRL off.

i tried that and it doesn't work, it says in the owners manual that the canadian trucks have option disabled, i was woundering how i would be able to turn that function on,

Do you live in the US?
If so there are ways to reprogram the body controller to make that feature to work like it should for the US.
Not sure how much it will cost or how much trouble it will be but you might have your dealer look into it.
If you are in Canada, leave it alone.

Take your DRL bulbs right out.

US vehicles usually allow you to disable the DRLs by setting the park brake and then starting the vehicle, they stay off until you release the park brake.
Not sure about Canadian models though.

Sorry, didnt know the Canadian models are different.. As for taking out your DRL bulbs, it will cause the blinker to blink fast.. Correct me if im wrong guys.
