Drain

99 TJ where are the drains in the floor.
Got rained on hard for 20 mins with no windows or door tops.
I found the ones under the front floor mats, any more?

That's it, one drain per side in the front footwells.

Maybe in later TJs (not even sure of that) but not in early TJs. I tried to drain the back of my '97 once and the lack of drains back there definitely made it a PITA.

Indeed it does!
Thats the last time I leave home without my door tops and windows, but I was going to a dodgy part of town to the GD unemployment place and didnt want to leave them where they could be stolen.

I don't know about earlier models, but my 04 has drain holes under the rear floor mats. I had to drain it after the same situation. That is why I removed the rear carpet and the wheel hump carpets.

Yup, there are 6 drain plugs in my 99. Two in the floorboards, two behind the seats and two in the bed.

Are those fitted with actual rubber drain plugs Jack? If so, having six drains must be sweet!

They were at one point in time. I just recently took the rear ones out of the tub to run my fuel lines up there when I relocated my tank. Only reason I knew they were there. I had never lifted the carpet before I actually took it out.

rhino line it and drill some holes. I have an 02 with plugs in the back, got real wet. The rear didnt drain completely, = 3/8 hole at the termination of the low spots. That and the lining, never had a problem again.

Rear wheels, curb, solved... Me, I have a couple of 6x6 railroad ties left over from a retaining wall, they come in handy when I need an extra 5" or so or want to get it either nose up or nose down. They also come in real handy when we have those $#$#$#$ street racers running around, portable speed bumps.

I might drill into the back foot wells but that sounds scarey.
Last time I tried some drilling I broke 5 drills bits and hardly made a dent the bolt i was trying to drill out ( the one holding the front door hindge strap holder to the door)

x2. All factory, with rubber grommets I almost want to say there are 4 in the bed, but I could be wrong. Its been since the end of last summer since I have opened them up.

A Glock .45 will give you all the drain holes you need.

Sure, but if you use a 10Ga slug the factory plugs will fit...

The floor in a jeep easy to drill, just make sure you know where you're drilling so you dont end up IN the tcase lol

I just checked, theres 4 in the bed of an 02, that makes 8 factory holes with plugs and a few 6 or 8 3/8 holes for good measure.
