Rear Drain Holes?

Im trying to Herculine my interior and pulled everything out over the weekend. I noticed there are no drain holes in the back of my Jeep, only 2 big ones up front. I have a 98 Sport, should there be drain holes in the rear? How does the rear drain? Do you all just drill large holes in the back?
Thanks.

My 98 has two large drain holes on the drivers side floor between the rear seat mounting brackets. They'll be plugged with a rubber plug just like the front. I did drill holes in the lower floor pan right behind the front seats.

So your Jeep didnt have a way to drain the rear floor pans either? Strange. Is there anything under those floor pans in the rear that I should be careful of when drilling. Thanks.

Why would ya need drain holes there if there's no low spots for the water to collect?
To drain the rear, just park on a slight incline (facing forward) and open the back tailgate.
Or... are you referring to in front of the rear seats?

In front of the rear seats, in the recessed pan area.

There was nothing in the way on MY Jeep, but I recommend that you check under YOURS before drilling. Just to avoid any moments. I just picked a low spot and drilled a 3/8" hole. Didn't make sense not to have a hole there.

Ah ha.... when you said "Rear" of the Jeep, I took it to mean the rear as in the very back, not the rear passenger area.
