More telephoto reach: add DX body, or TC-14 III?

I have a D750, and a Nikkor 80-400 f4.5-5.6. I love it, but I would like more reach for wildlife/bird pics ...who wouldn't?

The Nikon TC-14 III teleconverter seems very well praised by users, such as on BHphoto. Still, I can't help but remain a little skeptical about noticeable loss in image quality.

Another possibility without breaking the bank, would be to pick up a D7200 body to get the reach with its aps-c sensor, still keep all 24Mpixels, not lose an F stop as with the TC-14, and perhaps retain all the good Image Quality, especially given the d7200 has no AA filter.

Any thoughts on which way to go -- TC-14 III vs D7200 body?
Thanks!

[Note, I realize with the TC, there is loss of 1 f stop, and certain camera+lens incompatibilities]
