depends on what you want to do with the truck. if its a daily i would use the 700R4. if its gonna be more for the track i would use the TH350.

with 373 gears and the TH350 its gonna suck gas on the interstate. if its not going to be just for the track then i would use the 700 because of the overdrive. you can build them up just as strong as a 350 also. but one of my buddys had 373s th350 with some 26 inch tires and it turned 3000-3500 rpm at 70mph. i dont know how much of a difference 5mph would make but thats pretty high considering gas is so high now

What I would suggest you do is borrow a friends car or truck that has a OD trans, Drive it around for about an hour. then take the car out of OD and put it in D or 3. drive it like that for about another hour, and you will be able to see the basic difference.
