Water leak

Today was a monsoon here in west michigan. We had about 4-6 inches of water in some places on the roads. As i was driving to school, water would start to splash my feet coming from somewhere behind the dash. Is there any spot that is notorious for leaking in yj's from thar area?

Mine comes from the hood scoop on the top and leaks through some of the firewall. Just see if any of the wires coming from under your dash are leaking. I put some caulk around it and it's stopped.

Remove and clean the cowl drain tube, most likely your problem. See pic.

Wet feet riding to work today. I definitely gotta check the cowl drain. I already got the cowl vent cover and it still leaks

If cleaning out the cowl drain doesn't solve the problem, it's likely the windshield cowl seal.

Pour water from a bucket or hose on various places where you might think it may be coming in from. This will help pinpoint it. Have someone inside looking for water. Make sure the interior is dry to begin with. Are both sides leaking?
