Gasket on your wind shield my be bad. Check and make sure its not all dry rotted and cracked. If so the driving force of the rain can be washing down into your cab. Check with a garden hose spray in different spots. One at a time like start with the bottom then check then try top and then check etc.....

Sometimes it is hard to find. Often the cowl seal is crud and isn't really doing its job. Sometimes the metal under it rusts out and this adds to the problem. With my YJ, I used a hose as Cakes mentioned above, but I took off the spray nozzle first and just let the hose empty at low pressure. If I found no leakage, then it was nozzle time. When doing this, don't be haphazard. Spray one area and then check thoroughly before spraying another. I am almost tempted to scrape it all off and fill it all in with windshield sealer. On my YJ, I have a custom dashboard and ran my windshield wiper motor's wires different than OEM. So I can access them if I have to.

Take care,
Check "YJ V6 Conversion Swap" if you want to see my "frame up" restoration that anyone can do.

Check "WWII Willy's restoration and usage..." if you want to see THE ORIGINAL JEEP IN ACTION.

I think it came as a factory option on all model yj's, if it came with the 4 cyl or 6 cyl option you get the leaky wind shield frame at no cost.
