Default DRL Jumper Question

I know the process regarding 30/87a to disable the DRL'*, but was curious as to the construction of the jumper itself. What did you use for the ends? Spade connectors? All of the spade connectors I found looked too wide. Not sure if I'm going to disable them yet but am tossing it around.

Thanks.

I used spade connectors attached to an insulated 12ga wire but took a pair of side cutters and cut off one of the two prongs from each end. Fits like a glove into the slot and VERY secure. Also makes it a snap to remove the jumper and plug the relay back in if you need to do so.

Exactly what I did.

Sounds good. That'* what I was thinking about doing with the spade end but wanted to check first.

Thanks.

Got the jumper in. Works well. I'll carry the relay in the glove box during the "trial" period. I'd say I'll leave it in . Thanks for the help.
