Leaking doors part II

I did a search before I posted this, and saw that there was already a thread that basically dissolved into two directions: some folks saying that it's a jeep, it gets wet, its ok (even desirable); and the other saying that you have to pull the drain plugs.

Since neither answer my question (or the poor guy who originally asked it), I'm asking again.

I just bought a used 07 JK that, in all appearances, is in great shape. However, when it rains, the passenger side gets soaked. The door, the dash, the seat, the console, the gearshift, even the driver side seat feels a little humid. It is not coming through the roof (it doesn't feel wet), and it's not splashing up from the floor either. My guess would be something to do with the weather stripping, but on first inspection, that looks ok too.

So my question is: has anyone else experienced this (specifically) and how much did it cost you to repair? If you happened to fix it yourself, where did you go (a regular mechanic, body shop, etc.)?

Any constructive advice would be a big help, but please keep it constructive and on point.

Thanks and happy holidays!

JJ

Mine did the same thing. There's a piece of foam where the upper corner of the door surround and the top corner of the windshield header meet. There's a piece of foam tape in there that degrades pretty quick (at least it did on my 2009).
Anyway, you can either go to the dealership and get the part (not sure of the number) or do as I did and just slap a big bead of clear silicone on the passenger and drivers side where the header and surround come together. Worked like a charm for me I was getting water from the dash on to the seats back to the rear of the door.
I can take some pics if this sounds like a similar problem.

The foam kit sells for like $120+ from Mopar. Definitely worth it if the seals have degraded or ripped off. I replaced the top on my '07 for multiple issue including a missing foam that soaked the drivers side.
