Help Finding Drain Plugs In My 99
 
I got poured on last night. I have about an inch of water in the back seat floorboard. I've pulled the carpet back and can't find any drain plugs. I've read that the drain plugs are different on different model tj's. All I see are metal oval rings that don't appear to come out.

There should be rubber ones. 1 under each front floor area, 2 towards the very back of the jeep, a couple where the back seat feet areas are... they are spaced around. If you can't seem to find them, post a pic of the tub and we should be able to help ya out

Round plugs with a dimple in driver, driver rear and passenger foot well. These are the ones I remove anyway

My TJ doesn't have any rubber plugs in the rear floorboards, Only the two rubber ones up front. Pull the front ones and take a ride down the block, first time you hit the brakes the water will push forward and drain.

Are plugs important? I don't have them haha

Not to me. I don't keep mine in either, I took them out years ago.

After looking at the pictures, I definitely don't have those in the rear. I just pulled the front plugs, shopvaced all the water I could, and let the sun dry the rest. Luckily I had a towel over the dash and some trash bags over the front 2 seats. There wasn't any water on the dash.

Is it OK to leave the plugs out for good? It looks like when driving in the rain, it would sling water inside from the road.

I just pull front plugs back up onto a few 2x4s and it all comes to the front and out the front plug

Just put two funnels, one under each seat so the water will go to the front.














:p

You can remove those metal oval plugs in the rear floorboard and replace them with the rubber plugs from a JK.
