The 700R4 can be built to handle some serious power and having an overdrive gear is nice!

I would much rather have an updated and performance built 700R4 with it's lower first gear and overdrive capability. You can get away with running lower gears in the diffs with the overdrive for highway cruising and still enjoy the benefits of lower gearing for off-road.
