Oh and I'd like to know the PSI answer as well.

I wouldn't air down for mud.... Don't wanna get any of that in you're tires.... Also if you driving a stick and get stuck drop into neutral without using your clutch ...don't wanna get your clutch dirty.... BTW clean everything and I mean EVERYTHING afterwards... Mud is the devil, just repplaced my front calipers and pads due to it...

How do you put it in neutral without using the clutch?

It won't grind coming out of a gear without the clutch, only going into a gear without.

you can shift into neutral as long as your engine is at a good rpm. i know i never have issues doing it when on the road. right when i would be shifting gears while accelerating (2000-3000rpm) i can easily shift into N without a clutch. im sure it works as well offroad. although ive been in some pretty deep mud and have never had issues

there is no noticeable difference between what i run on the street normally (30psi) and 25. unless u get down into the teens, airing down doesnt make much sense.

dont air down for mud, thats only rocks..airing down give you more tire on the rock, you dont want more tire on the mud, skinnier tires are better in mud because they cut through it, if you were to air down really low your tires are just gonna float on top of the mud, leave um aired up to normal street psi..not sure about coating the underside with wd40 havent heard of it but sounds like it would work, i stay away from mud mostly, i went muddin so much i got tired of the underside gettin so dirty so i purple powerd the whole underside of my jeep and repainted the frame and underside of the tub mostly..muds fun but after a while you get tired of everything on the undercarriage gettin nasty, once you mud ONE time youll still find that same mud years later lol i still do it sometimes but i pressure wash everything no more than 2 days later lol
