Disabling Advancetrac on 2010

My roommate and I just went for a bit of mudding, well, a 5 hours trip haha. Well he would press the button to turn off traction control, but he still wouldn't be able to get full power to the rear because the stability control takes over. We need to find a way to disable both traction and stability forever. Pressing the button for 5 seconds doesn't do the trick, turning off ABS shuts traction off but not stability. Any input is very appreciated.

That sucks. I read a complaint on a forum somewhere from the owner of a 2010 F150. He said the stability control was a nightmare off road, always interfering. There has got to be a way to disable it. Maybe a tuner could do it, maybe the dealer could with computer software? Maybe there is a separate fuse for the ESC?
