What engine with more power than my 2.0 4 cyl would fit easily into this truck?

I would like to change my 5 speed to an automatic. What would you recommend that would work well with the 1st question?

I would prefer, if possible, not to have to make any or few changes to the frame and other structures,

There is a 2.9 V6 version for this vehicle and since you are interested in changing to automatic, the best way to go about is to get a half-cut and transplant the complete system over.
