Greetings, Oaktreex, and welcome. You asked:

Have read MRD requirements and I'm aware of the new tables; however, need help setting up my portfolio for
taking out the MRD at age 70. I'm 68 now and have 80%
equity, 20% income investment ratio. Do I remain as is and sell off my mutual funds as required for the MRD or reposition investments for more income?

That's a personal choice that each of us must make. There's no "right" or "wrong" answer here. Do that which makes you most comfortable.
