I'd recommend a used D4. You can snag one for about $1000, and it sounds like it would be absolutely unbeatable at that price for your needs.

If below items are the only upgrade, then I don't think it will matter in my shooting. Thanks for the suggestion though. Plus, I think D4 is a bit larger/heavier than an already large D700.

11fps vs 5 fps

16mp vs 12mp

204,800 max ISO vs 25,600 max ISO (also better high ISO performance)

video capabilities

larger viewfinder coverage (100% vs 95%)

in camera raw processing
