water water everywhere

Hello Gentleman I have a 95 Jeep Wrangler with a water poroblem. Every time it rains I get a leak under the dashboard, It's pretty nasty. It shorted out my radio and now the gas gauge quit working. I sealed the top of the hood, the rubber along the windshield hinge, and all along the bottom of the glass of the windshield. When it starts to rain my feet and legs will get wet. After a rain there is a puddle on the floor. The leak seems to go all the way across the dashboard. Has anyone else had this problem? I look at that sealer smoothed into the seams and can't believe the amount of water coming in. It could not be much worse if I took out the windshield. Thanks

I would quit messing around with the bandaid fix of applying sealer and replace the cowl rubber (fold the windshield over to access and check the drain in the vent box in the cowl (behind the hood).

ya i'd say replace the hinge seal and have the windshield seal replaced. and check that drain. so really i don't have anything else to add.
