I considered using an A440 transmission in my conversion but it was cheaper to go with the 7000R4, I suppose I could have used the A442 but it seemed like a lot or work to get a stand alone computer to make it work, plus I was not sure about the shift points in either one with the diesel.
The 700R4 was inexpensive and was set up for a diesel, rebuilds are inexpensive as are parts.
Good luck

The stock auto would be nice since there are no adapters for the 80 T-case, forcing you to use a split case which I hear is wider and harder to fit in the tunnel.

Not true. Marks 4WD makes adapters to go from chevy autos to the HF2A case in the fzj80. Available in the states from advance adapters.
