'08 TTE VSC/TRAC question

Hi all, I'm a newbie who just picked up an 08 TTE AT in great condition. My question is that if I want to take it mudding, there is no VSC/TRAC off button on the older models. I know VSC goes off when in 4H but does that allow you to spin the tires? From what I understand TRAC still kicks in and will sometimes kill the engine which is something that I definitely do not want. Has anyone had experience with this? I know that there are hacks out there to disable both but I'd like to avoid that if possible
