I have the same...i found mine was in the top corner of pass side behind the frame. the frame had weakend the selant that covers the threading and when in poors water slowly leaks through from the tension stretching the threads apart.

follow the from from the elbow just above the wheel well and see if it's wet. the water flowed from the corner down in mine.

hope this helps

Way off subject kinda but I have a 2011 jeep wrangler unlimited that is having a leaking problem. It occurs when you open the back passanger door the water from the roof comes inside the car getting the floor board wet, the seat as well as the inside of the child carseat. Ive taken it into the dealer and he says this is normal. Is this really normal????

pikey9116 has a good starting point there..
mousey215 i work at a new jeep dealership and i can tell you that most all the jeeps we sell come back with leak problems, even ones that we havent sold will have standing water in the floorboards we have a water doctor come in and put new door seals, rain gutters, windshield channels etc,etc--take your jeep in to your dealer and see if they will fix it (they should) even the new grands,patriot ,liberty,s,compus,s with sun roofs will leak mostly filling up the dome light..
i think the worst thing jeep ever done was to fancy up the wranglers enterior with carpet and such then stick a 30,000 dollar price tag on it..im like most on here a jeep should have more of the off road package and be a a go anywhere vehical not a fancy limo..
