Disco 2 rpm /mph

Just had my transfer box ratios changed in my Defender with some higher
ratio gears from Ashcroft transmissions which:

"raise your transfer case gearing by 15%, by replacing the gearing in the
exising 1.410 ratio transfer box with new geniune Q (quiet) gears, as used
in the Disco II."

Can anybody tell me how many rpm I should be doing in 5th at 70mph? (No rev
counter yet...)

Thanks

Not 100% sure in which vechicle you are refering but a Disco II with,
AFAIK standard gearing and tyre diameter, (tyres are 255/55R18) does
2250rpm (give or take a tad) for 60mph or about 2600 for 70 but I
rarely go that fast as it seems to be straining a bit. Much happier
hitting the at about 62mph or 2300ish rpm in 5th.

All as indicated by the instrumentation of unknown accuracy...
