if its not the drain thingy check the seal where the windshield frame meets the body. that is a common culprit

You have already addressed the common problem areas. Now I guess you have to crawl up under the dash and have someone spray the Jeep with a hose and see where it is coming from.

He He...I'm having the same problem! I even ran a bead of weatherstrip adhesive along the inside edge of the windshield/cowl seal and it still leaks. I can't seem to pinpoint it. Let me know what you find out.

I had a similar issue. Take the cover of the vent intake in front of the windshield. On mine the plastic vent housing didn't come up flush to the cowling. What I think was hapenning is water would seep in under the vent grate and drip down inside the Jeep, not down the vent like it was designed. I thru some rtv under the vent grate before I reinstalled and haven't had any water in the since. I also put a dab of rtv in each screw hole just for the heck of it. By doing this, the water can only go thru the grates and not seep in around it and miss the vent. Hope this makes sense...Good luck!!!
