I have a 2003 GMC Jimmy also and on it I never had to change a light.
Consumption is obviously an issue. The rest depends on where you are, if
I were to disable mine the cops would pull me over and award me a
48-hours-to-restore order. I will disable it on my Tundra regardless but
with a switch or something. Daytime running lights actually mask other
and much more vulnerable traffic like bikers and pedestrians out of the
driver's *brightness depth of field* so they are essentially a really
irresponsible and stupid marketting gimmick sometimes enforced by law.
There is already a movement afoot to fight it (google up DTRL and such).

My 1996 bFord Ranger with 343000km almost incredibly still has the
original headlights. The only bulb I know was replaced was one of the
brake lamp bulbs.

The truck is Canadian so has DRLs.

There is no such thing as "need to disable daytime running lights".

And dispite your "opinion" they do have dafety advantages. I won't get
caught up in the old arguement, but as a competetive rallye driver wat
back in the seventies I have been a :daykighter" fot 45 years.

Then don't join the fight, I already have, been driving for 60 years
BTW, not one accident, in case that would mean anything.

You're free to see it as you please, as far as I'm concerned the
industry needs so many kicks in the ass that DTRL is only the tip of the
iceberg. But this is a Toyota truck group (and this is my 3rd day as a
happy Tundra owner), let's not crucify it for the sins of the lot :-)
