Which FF body

I have a 7DII, 500mm F4 and sigma 120-300. I'm happy with the combination most of the time but at this time of year light is a bit thin on the ground and consequently ISO noise can be a bit of an issue.
So I'm thinking of getting a full frame camera as well as the 7dII, but am undecided between the 5DIV and 1DX MKI. I predominatently shoot wildlife and quite a bit of BIF.
The 5D has the edge on DR, noise and certainly pixels but a bit lacking in FPS.
Both full frame cameras lose me some focal length and there is less cropability on the 1DX but if I stick a 1.4X on I will get some of it back but how much of the full frame advantage do I lose?

I know it's me who has to decide at the end of the day but I was wondering what other peoples experiences and thoughts were as I'm certain other 7DII users have gone through a similar process.

Thanks in advance
