I believe the running lights constant are the middle wire on the plug. u can check and make sure with a voltmeter

I think that would look awesome. Be sure to post some pics of the install if you are successful. Good luck!

It seems the logical choice, that's where I'd start. Just make the connections water tight.

I think that some where on here some one in VA got a ticket because his truck was transfered in and it did not have the daytime lights turned on in the system software that has to be programmed at the dealership.

I'd think the laramie longhorn decals would be more than enough of a luxurious look!
