From the listed above I would chose 5dIV.
My main wildlife camera is 5dIII, which I chose over my 1dIV and before 1dIII. FPS are great for me if I am doing BIF only, but even 5dIII is good enough (I have few BIF on my web taken with 5dIII).
Mainly I am photographing animals from hides on very short distances, so silent shooter was the reason why I bought 5dIII, not 1dX that time. However, if the FPS are most important for you, 1dX is the answer.

It's just a personal preference. I'd rather stick with one body than two.

For landscape/nature, a full frame is the way to go.
For wildlife a crop or better reach lens is ideal.
But, I'm finding the lower light abilities better suited for my needs, which is why the FF is better off for me.

For telephoto, I would be going with either:
Canon 100-400 + 1.4x
Sigma 120-300 + 1.4x or 2.0x
Sigma 150-600

What would the results be if I attached a 1.4x teleconverter (on 1DX for example) over using the 1.6x camera crop (7DII)?

*For wildlife, I am trying to do larger animals rather than small ones.

If I am too assume that a 1Dx2 is out of the budget, I'd go 5D4.

2nd best AF Canon has to offer, in many ways the best sensor,. (but not all obviously)

Best compromise for frame rate. ( I actually used to set my 1D3 and 1D4 to 6 or 7 FPS rather than 10 for wildlife, I find timing beats FPS in most cases.)

Best compromise crop-ability from FF (5Ds is obvious winner, but less DR, and huge files at lower frame rate, and missing a few of my favorite 5D4/7D2 bells and whistles)

One thing to consider, what lenses do you shoot wildlife with?
5D4 and 1Dx2 stand apart in their ability to shoot f/8 teleconverter combinations better than all others. A nice boost in AF in that regard.
