Advice on 700r4 swap Please.

I have an 85 CJ-7 with the 258/T176/D300. I have a 4" lift, 33" tires, 4.10 gears with a detroit in the rear.

I would like to swap in a 700r4 automatic. I see advance adapters makes the bellhousing and the
tailshaft adapter for the D300. I know there are easier swaps (T999 and T727), but I need the overdrive
so I can drive long distances to go wheelin. I also like the idea that I can swap in a 350 V8 later if I want.

What else is involved in this swap? I read offsetting the driveline 1" so the driveshaft clears the trans pan?
Anybody done this? Thanks for the help.
