Which auto/v8 combo for my D300?

I am thinking ahead to the next phase of my rock crawler build up. I will be going with an injected V8 and an automatic. I want to keep my D300 as I have just installed the 4:1 kit and HD output shaft. I don't want to spend money on adapters if there is a way around it. I am really auto tranny ignorant.

I am looking at the 350 or the 302. My preference is for a 302HO. (I am a Ford guy) I like the lighter weight and (H8 being correct)easier to keep cool than the Chevy 350 (Arizona summers). it really depends on what will match up.

Which autos will bolt to my D300? What tranny is best for this application?
