daytime running lights JK

Is there a wiring harness or device available allowing automatic daytime running lights?

Yep your dealer should be able to hook up his little programmer and set it up for you. If he cant, get yourself a AEV Procal. Great little programmer.

Say who.... Explain this please, what else does it do? I've been wondering about this myself, I would prefer my headlights to always come on when I start the vehicle.

Here ya go.
The best part of the ProCal is that it isn’t just for correcting the speedometer. The Tire Pressure Monitoring System can now be recalibrated to better suit aftermarket tires without triggering the dash light. Further, the ProCal Module makes it possible to activate daytime running lamps, "one-touch" turn signals, enable a temporarily increased engine idle speed for winching, clear engine codes, and even has a feature to help align the vehicle perfectly for optimal ESP performance.

The ProCal Module is equipped with a series of easy-to-use DIP switches. By reading the simple Quick Reference Guide included with the ProCal module, a user can quickly dial in a code for the desired recalibration. Once the DIP switches are set, simply plug the Module into the vehicle's OBDII. The whole process can be completed in mere minutes and it's just as easy to restore the vehicle back to its original settings with the ProCal.

Yup, thats right, dealer has to do it, you can't just buy a harness or something. The funny thing is, I live in Canada and am trying to pay my dealership to deactivate the DRL on my JEEP. I live fairly close to the US/Canada border (google MOON THE BALLOON to see where I live) and I was thinking if I have to I'll just jump the border and get them to do it.

X3, AEV Procal is the way to go. Go to the dealership once and they will argue with you and maybe eventually give in while charging you way to much. The Procal will do this in seconds along with various other changes as explained. Worth the money for me and not one person I talked to regretted their purchase.

On my 2010 Dodge Challenger the dealer was able to use his service programming/scantool to turn on DRL for my turn signal lights. It was just a programming change and they did it for free.

I was probably going to ask them to do that for my Jeep. I think that any visual cue that will make your vehicle stand apart will potentially help someone notice you before pulling out in front of you mindlessly. I also wondered if there was a way to may the 3rd taillight blink programmatically when the brake is first applied.

X4,,ProCal is the way to go on this. I made the signal lights my DRL's, they are not the dim park lights but the bright side of the signal lamps like you see the corvettes running.

If you have the DRL turned on, can you turn them off when you need to? (drive in movie, etc.)

Drive in movie? I remember them, but I don't remember my parents keeping the engine running.

When driving into and out of the drive in movies (we still have them in Kansas City) it is polite to turn off your headlights (parking lights only). There are other situations. It sounds like I'd not be able to turn them off while moving.
