2015 Unlimited - water in floorboard

We had a lot of rain in this part of Texas last weekend. I noticed during the rain that water from the gutter dripped into the Jeep when the door was opened. I searched the website and see that this is just a design flaw. I noticed yesterday that the front and rear floor boards (carpet) were fairly wet. Do you guys think I have another leak besides the drip from the gutter?

You very well could have. Hard or soft top? Pull the carpet out and don't worry too much about it. )

It's the 3 piece hardtop. Is the carpet easy to pull out?

You have to cut a part of the front carpet. It's really easy

Don't worry about pulling the carpet. I just grab my wet/dry vac and suck out as much water as possible. Leave the top,open I the sun and you'll be fine. The carpets are designed with a mildew resistant component because they know Jeeps leak. But it does sound like you have a bigger leak. Good luck.

Yes super easy to remove and then you have better access to the drain plugs. If it rains and you get a leak pull the plug and let the water run out leave it out for a bit to allow it to dry then put the plug back. My soft top leaks like no other I have done everything from replacing seals to even getting new door surrounds nothing has worked. So if I know it's going to rain I just proactively pull the plugs and let the water drain out as it comes into the jeep.

Try Honda Shin Etsu grease on all seals.

Amazon.com: Honda Genuine Shin-Etsu Grease: Automotive

I had the same leaks with my hard top. Put this on the seals and not a drop since.
