Water on my feet

How do I stop water from dumping on my driver and passenger side at my feet when it rains?

It might be worth checking out the vent scoop for the yj, still sucks in air but lets most of the water fly by. Just mount it with the opening toward the windshield.

Not positive because I don't have the problem but I read somewhere that the air intake on top of hood sometimes the drain plugs get clogged not allowing the water to seep out correctly thus pouring in your cabin, is it coming through the vents or down from the windshield?

Yeah, there is a cowl drain on the fire wall that dumps just to the left of the transmission. I have the same problem when it gets clogged. Try taking this hose out, cleaning it, and shaving a little off the end. Good luck!

Funny, I just posted this same question on another forum. I'll check out that cowl drain hose.

Did you check to make sure the roof and doors were on? I know for a fact (as I leave mine off for the summer) that when it rains, you get wet. Check this, and you may find your problem. Glad I could be of some assistance. I love to help others in the Jeep community.

Yeah. But it IS a possibility. Always cover all angles before making a conclusion!

Have the same issue. Drain tube is clear. Might try a scoop.

Have you thought about the cowl seal? I replaced mine. No more water gets in.

I pulled that hose after work today and 1-2 cups of water poured out. I'm pretty sure that will solve my problems. The hose was full of pine needles and crap, cleaned it all out and re-installed it.

I also have this problem. But today I went and cleaned my Cowel Drain Tube and cut a little off the end. But I also feel drops of water on my legs when I make a left turn while driving in the rain....

The scoop likely won't help, or it may mask a different problem.

Check the seal between the tub and the windshield frame, also the dash plate could be rusted where it meets the windshield, making the seal less effective.
