It's kind of hard to explain but kevin whipps explained it well on sts.com.

Channeling:
"What I do is cut out a section of floor above the frame. It goes up onto the firewall a bit, and up into the seat area a smidge, but it's not under the seat at all. Then I cut out clearance for the ABS under the truck, the tranny, driveline and gas tank. Basically I take a 3" stick and run it all over the underside of the truck, and wherever it hits, I cut it out. Then I cut down the cab mounts 2", and the mounts on the cab itself I cut 1" and then plate with 1/4" plate, which gives me a 2.75" channel. Then I make sheetmetal plates to cover the frame holes, and button it all up."
