2004 x wet driver side floor

So a couple weeks ago I noticed the floor in my jeep on my driver side was soaked I work out side and sometimes there is a lot of snow on my boots and it melts and sits for a good 30 mins on my way home so I dried it and soaked up what I could underneath it and was not pleased with the rust I found underneath. But in warmer months I'm going to pull out carpet and fix it. My question is, is this a common problem in this year / model I know I'm paranoid I'm just waiting for something to go wrong this thing has been great and has been to good to be true for me. I was just wondering if there are leaks somewhere that are common or if its just me and my wet boots I do have pretty good floor mats sorry I'm thinking out loud and I'm paranoid. What do you guys think is the best way to fix my surface rusted floor? I was going to sand it down and line it with herculiner or something what you guys think?

Search...lots of posts on wet floors. Check drain under cowl in front of windshield, they can get clogged. Then water works its way through the vent intake into the vehicle.

Okay this is REAL IFFY but my '04 has soft uppers...if yours doesn't this won't apply....and I replaced them with aftermarket and thought, "yeah they look good will be better than the old ones."

But my floor was wet and door was wet....than I remembered about reading about adjusting the uppers to fit....it basically involves opening the door and pulling the top in to you while bracing your thigh against the lower half door. SO yes you are "bending the 3 bars that go inside the door" that allows the door to than be tighter and compress the seals better.

Worked for me.....
