Any links out there on how to do this? Or if not, could someone explain how to do it?

Open your glove box, and shut the switch off. It is located in the upper left position. It defaults back to "on" every time you shut off the car, and turn the car back on. Other than that, it will have to be programmed "off " in the PCM if you want it to be permanently off. Or you can move the switch to a more accessible location.

Yeah, what he said. Smile

I moved mine to the center console. Oh, yours doesn't have a console? Razz

No console yet, Bill. Smile Maybe someday. Actually I think my next addition will be another FW that I can mod and mess with, and I might have to have a "console". Very Happy

On the traction control, glad to know it's that easy but I'd like to permanently disable it, so that's just an easy PCM edit? I gotta get the tools to do that but that's another subject...

I found out while trying to fix my FWB's electrical problems that if the ABS module does not receive a signal from the TPS it disables the traction but keeps the ABS active.  I'd have to look at the wiring, but if you were to either cut or remove that signal at the ABS module iit should be disabled for good.
