Water on the passenger side of my wrangler

Hey guys I'm getting water on my passenger side floor front and back in my two door 2009 sahara and I can't see the water coming in? Any ideas I'm thinking maybe from the drain in the middle of the hood but can't see the water coming in.

Check the stickies, there was one that showed the book Chrysler has about the leaks and fixes. Check the drain plugs in the foorboard, also.

If its not from the drain plugs then you have found one reason FOR drain plugs. I have seen many posts on water in the forums so you are not alone.

I have the same issue... just yesterday I was trying to figure out where the water was coming from and looked under the carpet and what do you think I found? Nothing! As in no drain plug on the passenger side. I have ordered a new plug and will check the others to be sure they are in place. Now I have to figure out if the waster is coming in the drain plug or I really have that much leaking in that it was left out on purpose.

I found a great way to find a leak. The missus '09 did the same thing. I taped a piece of rubber mat to the plastic trim along the floorboard. As the floorboard would be completely filled with water. I found out the water was coming in at the fender edge of the door. Just past the bend at the bottom. There is a muck seal on the tub on the straight edge of the inside between the hinges.

I have done a complete re-seal including door gaskets. Now, no leaks in 2 years.

I bought the kit, it has a mopar part number, and the door gaskets. Did it all myself.
There is a sticky at the top of the jk forum that links to the pdf that covers the leaks and how to repair them. Along with part numbers.
