While installing my new Grizzly Grip bed liner this weekend, I was reminded of all of the water that tend to pool in the passenger side floor. Any ideas why this happens and how I can fix it?
BTW: the bed liner turned out great. I'll try to post some before and after shots. I am impressed with the product so far.

Couple of things you can check. Make sure your fresh air intake, on your cowl, drain tube is not blocked. Make sure your drain tube for A/C unit, is not plugged up. You should be able to run your A/C, and see water dripping on the ground.

Thanks. I do see a lot of water dripping on the ground. I'll check the others.

Im new to the forums and saw this post. I just went through this on my 2002 TJ. No blockages in any part of the system and it was draining just fine. What I found is that the drain tube at the firewall did not have a 90 deg angle tube on it. What happens is that the wind drives the water back into the system either into the tube or down the side of it. I spent about 2 dollars on the parts needed to extend the hose and turn it 90 degrees. Havent had water on the floor since.
Hope it helps I know what a pain it is having a lake on your passenger side floor.

I'll bet that's the same problem I'm having. I've cleaned that tube a couple of time. I'll try extending that tube to the down position. THANKS!

Yep totally fixed it on my TJ, After i noticed the floor drenched. Let me resay that, After my Fiance yelled at me for her stocking feet being soaked. I started a long hard battle with the dreaded lake. I was an Auto Tech for many years before going to the railroad so after two weeks of fighting it I was Getting angry and inventing words around my Jeep, I had about given up When it hit me, The only time It was happening was when i was on the road at higher speeds.
I used standard tubing from the Ace hardware I think around 3/4 to 1 inch, I know I ended up heating the tube with a torch to spread it out. some hose clamps, and a pvc 90 degree. Works great. LOL I am just glad my carpet was saveable. Also glad it only cost about 2 dollars, more money for my next project an OR-Fab sport cage to start :D
