If it was me in that boat..i'd go SUA since that front axle looks like the pinion angle is way off,youre going have to cut the spring brackets off and move anyhow.
Downsize the tires like you want..do some trimming for clearance issues..or do a "highline" mod on the front fenders and open the rear up a bit for more clearance but opening the tub up..but in those cases it would most likey call for a paint job too since you would be welding on the rear 1/4's to open the wheels wells up for the tires.
Just going back to SUA should net you around 5" of less lift alone.
I'm like you,i like the LCOG idea..jeeps roll over easy enough without a lift,i'm going to do a serious LCOG on my jeep for flex and bigger tires for clearance underneath and better street habits.
