It looks like they can be disabled in the uconnect access system. From the owner's manual:
• Daytime Running Lights – If Equipped
When this feature is selected, the headlights will turn on
whenever the engine is running. To make your selection,
touch the Daytime Running Lights soft-key, until a
check-mark appears next to setting, showing that setting
has been selected. Touch the back arrow soft-key to
return to the previous menu.
I'm guessing the DRLs can't be disabled if your Jeep is configured for Canada and other countries that require DRLs.
