Headlight Ribbon DRL Activation Kit question

Please excuse me but I have to ask a dumb question. I know a member here has a kit but I wanted to ask what is the default behavior for the US based SRT JGC before you add the kit?

Please note I don't have a SRT but I am shopping for one. I am just curious what is the default behavior of the DRLs from the factory.

TIA (thank you in advance)

Only the bottom LED's near the fog lights illuminates when the vehicle is in drive. Just like this:

Re: Headlight Ribbon DRL Activation Kit question

Then when does the ribbon ever come on?

Headlight ribbons come on dimly once the parking lights and/or headlights are turned on.

Re: Headlight Ribbon DRL Activation Kit question

Are there any concerns that running your kit allows for the ribbon to be on full bright (when lights & parking lights are off) would lead to a shorter life expectancy for the ribbon?

Re: Headlight Ribbon DRL Activation Kit question

I would not think so. The overland and summit models run the Headlight Ribbon DRLs at full brightness as a stock feature. They use the same headlights...
