Barry McKay calls his 1987 Toyota pickup “The Fazi Build” and build it he did. He states: “All of the work on this truck has been completed by myself aside from the drive shafts, mounting/ balancing tires and alignments.” When you read the long list of mods, you’ll agree that this is an amazing accomplishment for a do-it-yourselfer.
He has a dream: “I have always wanted to be able to build a vehicle that can go anywhere I go when it comes to adventure and exploration. This build is still very much in progress”.
This Coquitlam, BC native is busy with “day trips and camping excursions, mainly off the beaten path. Over- landing trips are the most fun but they only happen once or twice a year. I always like to attend meets and shows to compare builds with other enthusiasts into the same things as myself.”
There are 2 accessories he likes best: “My favourite by far is the Roof Top Tent from Tepui Tents. It makes camping so comfortable and sets up and folds up in a matter of seconds. My second favorite is the dual transfer cases. I can hop out and walk beside the truck over almost any obstacle on the trail.”
Barry’s plans now show how technically adept he has become: “I am currently fairly deep into an engine swap with a 4.7L V8 Toyota Tundra 2UZ-FE as well as an extended cab swap to get some extra space. This swap will include a full frame off restoration (again) and a full paint job.”
Who needs roads when you’ve got The Fazi Build!
