Whenever it rains, my Wrangler's passenger side floor always gets quite wet, then runs back under the seat. I found this weird, but my older Wrangler (98') had the same problem but WAY worse...i took the rugs out as a permanent fix due to mold from the water. It would get a few inches deep in water across the floor by morning if it rained all night. That car is gone (someone set it on fire, burnt to the frame), BUT this one is starting to do it to, just not as bad, and seems to be intermittent. I'm sure others have this problem. What is it?

If it is only when it rains try to pinpoint where it is at. Sit in the jeep and have someone else hose it down. There was a thread here I found earlier that mentioned the windshield seal (I would check the seal around the window along with the seal on the frame) and the doors seals.
Lev is having the same problem. We are going to look at his this weekend and see what we can figure out. If we find anything I'm sure it will be posted.

The most likely culprit is the fresh air drainage tube, which is found under the yellow arrow that George T. was trying to show you. It is not an A/C issue.

Awesome, thanks for the input. I have use a hose and ran it through the vents on the hood under the windshield to see if there was some sort of drainage issue there, but not even a drop in the car. It does only happen when it rains, so I will check the windshield seal as well, but I don't think that is it.

it may have been clogged when it rained and when you put the hose in there the pressure knocked whatever was blocking it loose. when mine was blocked it was just a bunch of dirt and leaf fragments. nothing big.

I actually figured out exactly where it was coming from by drying out the mats and checking it while it was raining. Turns out it was my passenger side door. From what it looks like is its coming from the bottom. Possibly through where the window comes out of the door and is coming out the bottom or maybe the seal is leaking.

I did notice after it rains, my doors on the inside have a good amount of water in them.
