A/C leaking inside

A couple of weeks ago I went through my A/C system and got it working. The condensation drain seem to be leaking back into the cab soaking the passenger side floor. I have tried to make sure the drain is not stopped up on the firewall and it seems to be free from blockage. I know this is a common problem just have not seen an actual fix for it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I know the answers I will get about it being a Jeep, just put the top down and so on but I need the A/C when I make long trips with my English bulldog as they have difficulty breathing in hot temps. Thanks again.

The AC drain is underneath the RS. The one on the firewall is the cowl drain.

Is that not the A/C drain at the bottom of the pic? It has some water draining out but I also have a lot coming inside.

And all this time, I thought it was condensation dripping from the outside of the box.

Thanks for the posting.

Yeah could be but it's not! Only happened with the A/C on and it was pure water and no antifreeze. It's fixed now with the added hose.
