Default 2000 Ranger Headlights: OEM vs. Aftermarket

Which is better the Oem headlights or Aftermarket ones. I have a White 2000 ford ranger xlt with the old faded headlights. I've tried cleaners, but I think it's time to just get new headlights and taillights to match. The question is: Should I buy replacement headlights, or go with Aftermarket ones. What I am going for is style with the best lighting. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

I like that look of those headlights, but I dont have those bottom two lights.. How is the lighting with your headlights. Ive done some research and found that alot of aftermarket headlights are just for looks. Since I dont have any other lighting, I cant rely on just looks. but great looking truck..

Here are tons of options, for your 00.
I'm planning on getting some smoked lenses fronts and back, I think it'd look pretty cool with my white ranger. Also going to get a chrome trex billet grille as well.
