New guy from CO looking toward a 6th gen TRD PRO

Hello all! Caught the link from one of TRD JONs videos as i've been consuming any and all 6th gen 4Runner info I possibly can since the recent announcement! I've been primarily a Subaru guy for the last few decades. Started with a '04 WRX which evolved into an '06 STi and my current ride has been a 2012 STi i bought brand new and have been driving for the last 12'ish years. In the 4Runner game I had the pleasure of owning a rare 1986 Turbo 4Runner (shown below) that i picked up as a rock crawler / hobby SUV. Was a great truck and heavily modified from the previous owner and i took down alot of trail and camping time with it. I ended up selling it to another guy i trailed with at one of the Colorado "Yota Jams" not long after i got married and our first kid showed up which cut way down on my outdoor adventure time for a bit. Needless to say I've been closely watching the 4Runner the last several years and have been pretty close to pulling trigger on a 5th gen recently but with the way the 6th Gen is sizing up it looks like i'm in the market to trade the old STi for the new new! I love the aesthetic of the 6th gen from the announcements and the drivetrain is right up my alley with the i-force max (which according to the tacoma's MPG numbers is getting better MPG than my STi does currently). Glad to be here on the ground floor all!

Couple images of my old 4Runner, current STi, and a couple other from the stable.
