Like everything else in life, it depends on how much you want to spend. I purchased a set of Rockford Fosgate speakers for my 05 WK and are very pleased with the sound. You can find a lot of deals on eBay, Amazon, and even Crutchfield. You can find all of the sizes you need on there, and then can then shop around for the best deals. If you order from Crutchfield, you get all the wiring, hardware, and technical assistance for free in most cases.

Re: new head unit and speakers

Going with OEM Nav, you may as well upgrade to a MyGig system for the amount of cash that you'll have to drop on it. If you're looking on the cheap, I remember seeing that some Chinese knock-off company was making a wannabe MyGig system that plugged right into our old systems and it was like $400.

As for speakers, I replaced my factory Boston system with the Boston SE series, and it's like a night and day difference, even from the "premium" OEM audio system. I couldn't be happier with them. Those I got on the cheap through sonicelectronix and had them beat the prices for several shady websites that I found.

The speakers cost me right around $200 if I remember correctly, and I did the full upgrade with 2 - 6x9's (3-way), 2 - 3.5" (2-way), and 2-6.5" (2-way). Remember that the factory system with the crossover makes having anything but a woofer in the doors useless, unless you want to put in a component system or rewire the crossovers...
