Factory are the way to go.
I searched around last year for factory lights and found many GM dealers on Amazon and Ebay competing to be the cheapest. I bought a set for my 04 and Smart Ass Jr's 05. The total was about $450-$475 after freight and tax.
They came with new bulbs also.
Jr claimed they are brighter than his old lights plus 30" lightbar. No need to spend money on the upgrade bulbs. Anything brighter would just be rude to everyone else. I definitely aimed mine down to not be a dick.
Post back how they work.
