Do the factory upgraded JL LED tail lights have exterior trim daytime running option?

It seems as mine are only working when breaking, however it’s just the turn signal / break lights rather than the trim running.

Looking for the option in the photo below. Is there a setting to enable this, or do I need to buy new?

The rear LEDs only work when they are turned on by the switch, not part of the DRL system.

I always drive with the lights set at it's parking position, have been doing this for decades, so it's a habit.

Same here. Before owning vehicles with drl's, I'd habitually turn all the lights on to be more conspicuous to those who don't pay enough attention. My Jeep has the full led package, which are pretty bright during the day, compared to yesteryears incandescent bulbs. Plus, the fog lights work without the headlamps on, so I run around during the day with the parking and fogs on.

I wish DRLs required taillights be on as well.

With dashboards that always light up, and front DRLs, I see many people driving around after dark thinking their lights are on, or when using DRLs, the vehicle should ALWAYS be in auto-mode for headlights.

I have the total LED package. Run with my park lights on in daylight all the time (that activates the rear LED's)

Dumb question I guess as multiple people have mentioned this. How do you run/ turn on your park lights?

I don't know mine are on auto and I am driving never took a look.

I always assumed if my front driving lights are on so are my rear. Will take look.

However if they can not see the big ass mostly silver wheel they are going to hit you anyway.

That’s what I thought until I was driving behind another JL the other day and started questioning if my lights were off too.

Yeah living where I do it is mostly dark driving to work and I see people with their auto driving lights on and their rear has no lights at all. I should say their running lights not driving.

It's the first "click" on the headlight knob.
