Hello fellow Canadians (or our American brothers who also enjoy DRL)...
I would like to switch out my quad lights for HID but it seems like it might break the daytime running lights (DRL) which means my truck won't pass government inspection.

Can anyone confirm that installing HID light systems breaks this function? I can't seem to find any threads that specify one way or another.

Thanks all!

Depends. Are you installing HID's in both the low beams and the high beams or just the low beams? The DRL's are the high beams at 50% power. So if you don't install HID's in there you'll be fine. If you do, well then they aren't going to work.

unless you have the projector headlight then the DRL is the park light/turn signal and you would be fine to install HIDs

Just put HID in your lows you will be fine, get a good kit from retrosolutions or the retrofitsource made for your truck.

The AEV-Procal tool for the Jeeps lets you move your DRLs to either the park lights or disable them completely. It might be worth asking them if they have something Ram compatible.
