Both should do well. You may want to plan for a performance rebuild on the 700R4, but so long as you protect the transfer case from impact, it will hold up quite well.

i never really had a 700r4 in a wheeling truck. had one in a 84 that i used as a daily driver/tow vehicle on 33s and it lasted the few years i owned the truck.

for the past few years ive been wheeling with the 208 case also with a 400ci and 38 inch tires and never had one problem with the transfercase. also depends on what kinda wheeling your doing. if your gonna be going ***** out bouncing up rocks you might have a issue
