shut off TC in AWD 07?

there's no switch to turn off the traction control on my 07 AWD, is it hidden somewhere? If I put a switch on the wire leading to that fuse, would it just defeat the TC or would the VSC also not work, if this thing has it. I want it off sometimes, it in deep heavy snow or when pulling another car out of the ditch

Traction Control applies breaking to the spinning wheel and decreases the throttle body... When plowing through snow, especially climbing a snowy hill, you WANT to keep up your momentum, which Traction Control defeats.... I ALWAYS turn off TC on my 2003 XLE when climbing a snowy hill. On my model there is a TC OFF button by my left knee. This does not defeat the VSC which only kicks in if your skidding off center.
