Leaking cab

As some of you may know I recently welded in an entire new floor on my 94. Welded solid, seam sealed and undercoated. After being parked in the rain all day while I was at work a few weeks ago, I went out to discover about a half inch of water on the drivers side of the tub. Found out that the vent drain was plugged so I cleaned it out and solved that problem. But, it's still getting water in it. Where could it be coming from? The gasket under the windshield feels soft, so I'm not sure if that's it or is there somewhere else where these things tend to leak? Thanks for your help.

pull the windshield seal away from the metal. look for corrosion or gunk build up. i ran a bead of non hardening caulk along behind the seal and took care of that leak.

i can read . but the fresh air intake has no seal on it. it rains then the water runs along a small lip that the funny guys at jeep put there to make that area more rigidthen hits the fire wall and runs down to the floor.take your dash apart and look at it

Hmm...well, I'll try both; maybe some weep holes are in order here. I pretty much did just write it off as a jeep thing, but the thought of a half inch of ice under my feet within the next few months was too much to bear..
