Just some comments...

If you have static routes out both ISPs, then there's no need for a dynamic routing protocol.

You can have all traffic going out the primary link and via IP SLA with tracking have the secondary link as a backup.

There's no need for dynamic routing protocols unless you want to.

Normally if you want to use dynamic routing with ISP will be using BGP.
