k so i had heard about the common leak in the passenger floor board
whenever it would rain even lightly a puddle would form
very irritating exspecially if u still have carpet
well anyways i just started having this problem and after some research i figured out how to fix it
this is my write up
first of all you have to remove the cowl
i used this writeup to get it off http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/showthread.php?p=5859456
once removed notice on the left side there is the cowl vent
turn on the ac notice how the hatch opens to allow air in

also notice in the very middle there is a drain

chances are if you are a frequent mudder this is filled with mud and junk
to test it fill with water
water should drain and fall out the bottom
if it puddles and overflows then its clogged
what causes the leak is this drain overflowing and the water going through the open hatch in the cowl
to fix just simply unplug that drain
fairly easy just keep running water and a shop vac

any questions??
