It is very plausible, however the length of the kammback is 100% additional length on the back of the 4Runner. (Unlike a pickup truck, where a sloping shell can be put on the back with no length penalty.) If you wanted to make a kammback for a 4Runner, I would look at the back end of an FJ Cruiser, which appears to have several feet worth of gentle taper on the top and sides. You would want to make an extension that basically looked like that. You would probably want to attach it to the hatch so that it would lift up and away when opened.
