I run the Navigators. You guys are right, that'* the best path. If you don't have the budget right now, then go 885 or 893 instead of the stock 880. Did the 94 really have the 880'*? That would mean the 93 was the last year at 50w stock.
If the lenses melt, you have to replace the whole assembly. Lenses aren't replaceable individually. Go Blazertech or Navigator. I'd prefer the Navigator simply for ease of installation. The Navigator bracket mounts very easily to the stock bracket. Both of these lights are blue tinted to remove the yellow wavelengths, both have a superior design in the reflector assembly over stock, both are 55w, and both are about the same price. Both are also slightly smaller than the stock diameter light which allows greater airflow to the bottom of the radiator if you have an SSEi, SLE, or SSE.
