Rear Drain Pictures

I've searched and have gotten kind of confused. It seems Jeep decided to put rear drain plugs in some TJ's and not others. Mine does not have drain plugs for the rear. I've only got the two plugs for front driver/passenger

So, I'm gonna drill some but kinda wanted to know where they are located from the factory, so could somebody take a picture for me? Pretty please

Rear as in rear seat foot well or rear as in near the tail gate?

Rear foot well. Do other models actually have drain plugs by the tailgate?

I don't worry about water pooling up anywhere back there, just in the rear seat foot wells.

Anyone have pictures of their floor with no carpet so I can see where the factory drain is?

My 97 has one on driver and passenger floor pans and I have 4 on what you could consider the truck bed where the seat goes but none for the rear floor pans.

Are all the drains you're talking about have the rubber plug just like in the front floor?

I'd appreciate it! I've ordered new rubber plugs and was planning on drilling holes this weekend but just want them in the factory spot

Do you have the channels stamped into the floor pan? Here is a picture of a floor pan. My holes are in the center of the oval in the picture. Noram Auto Body Parts 17446-L - Left Rear Floor Pan for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ - Quadratec

Mine is kinda like that but my oval is bigger and the oval is actually a drain with a metal plate in it. I could take the metal plate out but I'd bet the tabs that hold it in would bend and I wouldn't be able to replace it. I was thinking of drilling a hole in the metal plate and put a rubber plug in it.

After a second look, that first one is from under your back seat? I'm talking about the floor pan where passengers in the rear would put their feet

Mine look exactly the same I'd take a pic but I gotta a bunch of crap stuffed there. Let me know where you put the holes cause I'd like to put some there as well. My floorboards are basically used for tool storage.

If you look on the underside of your jeep you will see where the filler plugs are. I'd say you could knock those out from the bottom and use those filler plugs when needed or just drill holes right through them

You talkin about the metal oval things? I have looked underneath and I know I could knock them out but I'd probably have a hard time replacing them (they would probably bend) so yes, I think I'll drill a 1" hole in them, and put a rubber plug there

I guess Jeep has been changing it up. My rear floor pan, stamped channel and plug are nothing like those pictures.

Get some front drain plugs and drill your own hole. I had some rust around my front passenger drain plug. I cut it all out and cleaned it up. I took a piece of plastic form a pepsi bottle, rolled it up and stuck it in the bottom hole make sure I had a hole on the top and top. I then put a little grease on the plastic and fiber glassed/bondo around the plastic. When it dried I pulled the plastic out if the hole. I had to sand it down a little and sanded the hole open a little so the drain plug fits perfect now. Then I rhinolined the bed. Hope this helps. Any questions just PM me. Good luck.

Dutch, great post! Thanks for the tip! I'm sure if I did that it wouldn't end up looking as good as yours, but I might give it a try

If you be gentle with them you should be able to reuse them. I just threw mine away cause I'll come up with something better. If you notice, the ones I knocked out are right where all the water is really supposed to be drained since they sit in with with the channels. Doesn't make since to me to make a hole anywhere else since those existing holes are in the perfect place.
