I wired my '15 so that I can control front-and-rear DRLs manually from two switches in the lower dash:

One switch operates the aftermarket fog lights I installed in the fog lights position. I installed white 8-watt LED bulbs in the H11 bulb sockets and use them as dedicated DRLs in the front. I removed the fuse to kill the OEM DRLs in order to preserve the car's high beam bulbs for their nighttime purpose.

The other switch operates red LEDs which are placed in the rear bumper pop-outs that are there to cover holes for the tie-down or recovery hooks. This takes a little trial-and-error in order to secure in place the round 2-inch LEDs with rubber inserts I bought, which are commonly sold as side and rear markers for trailers.

I should have wired both front and rear DRLs to one switch, but I wasn't smart enough to think of that.

I did all of this because my car is a dark gray color like a cold meteor floating in space, so I have the lights on during daylight hours to help keep the speeding rocket ships around me from a collision.
