needing some advice on gearing for my jeep

I have a 75 CJ5 that I use for mudd bogg competitions. I have it set up with a BBC and a turbo 350 tranny and the dana 300 transfer case. My question is I want to run different gears in the front to make the tires spin faster. right now I am runing 410 in the front and rear. I am also using 35 boggers. I was wondering if I could leave the 410's in the front and maybe use like a 373 gear in the back??? Remember this will only see mudd NO pavement. If need be I can shift it into 2 wheel drive to get to the starting line. But still that will be on dirt NOT pavement. Or if anyone has any suggestions on which gears I should put either the front or the back any help would be appreciated. Right now with the 410's in it I can turn 7000 in second gear and 5700 in drive. So I am open to anything that will help out
