Could I buy the rocky road soa and some stock springs use some stock springs instead of the rocky road soa ones to give me a 5.5" lift? Also, I can weld.

I found a lift kit, no clue if it's any good. Rubicon Express 4" Standard Suspension System

SOA all the way, go to rough country and they sell all the perches, shocks, brake lines and everything you need to successfully do a soa.

I personally like BDS springs. I've had their 2" on my YJ for about 6 years. They also have springs upto 6". Made in the USA and their warranty can't be beat. Never had a problem with mine. They gave more than 2" of lift when new, but settled evenly and have not sagged.
I've had springs from Superlift and Full Traction which I returned due to poor quality.

I wouldn't waste my time or money on a SUA lift.

You might as well just get a 3" body lift and throw it on.

I think the SUA lifts are very underestimated if it's set up right it's amazing what it can do.

How would SOA with bds 2" springs perform? Good solid ride with ample flex? I imagine that'll be 7.5to 8" of height ? Too tall?

Short piece of advice, steer way clear of Rocky Road Outfitters. I bought their Bolt-on SOA and it was crap. I couldn't get my money back from them either. Piss poor customer service too. Good prices on stuff they don't have in-stock. I've seen wait times up to months to get things.

Back to your lift, SOA is the only way to go with a yj, unless you go coil-overs. Ibuildembig has an excellant build thread here on SOA suspension. Check it out.
