Unhappy Leaking Jeep??

Hope someone can help me with this.....been having ALOT of rain the last few days. When I got in the Jeep this morning, I noticed that the passenger door was wet inside near the dash. Upon further inspection, it was pretty clear that it had been leaking for awhile, floor mat was soaked.

It has never leaked before. I tried opening/reclosing the door and checked to make sure the window was up tight. I'm going to check it after work today and see if that solved the problem.

If that doesn't work, what would cause it to leak? Getting ready to go in for it's 1st oil change, so I could have the stealership take a peek at it.........

If you park under trees or got it real dirty there is a drain under that grill at the bottom of the windshield if it gets clogged water will back up into the heating and airconditioning system

It's appears to be leaking from the top of the door, so it can't be a clogged drain.....

I'm going to take a look at the door seal after work, perhaps that could be the problem.

Checked the soft top, everything's where it's supposed to be so I don't think it's coming from the top.

I noticed on my YJ that when I put on the soft top - if the top is inside the water channels on the top rail, the water runs down the doors and into the cab at the bottom of the door. It is evidently coming down inside the door seal. Try making sure that your soft top is over the water channel at the top of the door. I don't know if it is the same configuration on a TJ.
