I too have contemplated the move to the 4Runner, but personally, there are a few issues:
4Runner lacks a lot of the technology that you can get in a Rav4 - Blind Spot Monitor, RCTA, etc.
4Runner's 5AT makes it feel a lot slower on it's feet than the Rav4's 6AT (yes, I know the 4Runner is 1k lbs heavier, too)
4Runner gets much worse gas mileage, though with gas sitting at ~$2.10 a gallon here right now, not a huge deal.
The real deal breakers for me are the lack of tech and antiquated powertrain in the 4Runner.
