A/C drain fix! What to use?

So I noticed that it was still staying wet and I'm pretty sure it is the a/c drain and when I was using the a/c while I was driving it was blowing back into the firewall. And when it would rain it would just flood in through that drain.

I read that to fix the problem I need to hook a 90 on the drain. Has anybody done this to their jeep before I'm not sure how far I should run the 90 down and what size I should get.

Hmm... I'm missing mine and have no issues.
From what I remember, it was just a short 90 degree bent piece and just dumped out onto the "frame rail".
Don't know what size to get though...

Stop by the junkyard and stick one in your pocket.

Does different years come with different drain pipes. Mines an 98 and I just recently started to have this problem like in the last month or so. I caulked the crap out of the floor board and some seams in by the firewall and lubed my door seals with dielectric grease. Thinking that was the problem. But while I had my carpet up for a few days and no rain I noticed it was still getting damp and there would be water on the floor board. I felt the a/c drain seal from the inside and noticed it was a little wet. I have been driving without a/c and parking my jeep facing downhill. And I haven't had the wet smell anymore.
