Default what gears to run

I have a 75 CJ5 that I use for mudd bogg competitions. I have a 427 BBC with the turbo 350 tranny and the dana 300 transfer case. I have dana 44 running gear. Right now I am running 410 and I am turning 7000 in second. I am wanting to shift to drive but when I do it drops down to about 5000 rpms. I would like to know what gears I should put in it to get the rpm's back up to about 6500 to 7000 when I shift it into drive. I would like to have the wheel speed. I am also running 35 in boggers

4.88, overdrive on the highway will be a touch high but 4.10 will likely leave your wanting more Off road and around town.
