High-Strength and Durable TripleTech Frame of 2018 Tundra 

It takes a strong pickup truck to be able to deliver such impressive towing and payload capacities, and this can be credited to the ultra-strength TripleTech frame. The three elements of the TripleTech frame include two C-channels — one under the cab and the other below the bed — and full-boxed rails at the front of the truck. This results in tremendous strength and durability, not only for handling your towing and payload needs, but also for holding up well over the course of many miles and years of wear and tear.
