using the personal perferences on your EVIC, you may be able to shut them off yourself

I've got an 07', is there any fuse somewhere that I could pull to shut them off? And where do I access this EVIC?

The EVIC is the vehicle info center, (overhead on 3rd gen) the 09+ has it in the dash. The quickest least painful way i found was using a bullydog triple dog. It has all of the same user options that you find in the starsscan at the stealership. It doesn't need to be installed in the truck or have the full program, just flip through the menus and choose stuff like fog lights on with hoghbeams and seatbelt minder chime etc... hope that helps

There's no EVIC in the '07s. You can't pull a fuse as they're part of the running light/headlight line, so you'd pull it and then have no lights at all. You can go to the dealer and have them turn it off. If you're in Canada, then have them switch the country code to the US, disable them DRLs, then switch thecountry code back to Canada.

Check your state laws as it is a legal requirement in some states and all of canada that you have DRLs on newer vehicles. It's federally mandated so you're looking at a ticket for disabling safety equipment.
