Just pull the floor plugs and let it drain out.

if you still have carpet (hey! it's possible), you'll have to pull that back. I cut out holes in the carpet up front to let the water drain better.

I used to have a Bestop Sunrinder top. The windows never really sealed to the Jeep too well and I would have some water end up back there...

They do come with carpet, mine did, can't really take it out though. Same reason as why I don't have to worry about pulling the plugs, It's just one big hole under the carpet, and the carpet is all the lets me put my feet down.

Mine had carpet, but it is no more. Well, it's in my garage, but it's never going back in.

If I were you.... the way I found out where my last leak was, take it to the car wash, dump a couple quarters in and spray the thing down (perferably after you drain the other water). Spray at every point where the jeep and the top meet as well as the entire top, and spray it good, once done take a look around the inside and see if you can find out where the water came in from. See if you can find it that way...

I have sat in mine while it was raining to see exactly where it is leaking. Take the carpet and the plugs out and let it drain, clean it, and herculine it. I love my herculiner.

Right under the windshield their is a grate for an air intake.
The box underneath that drains out the firewall through a big rubber tube.
When it gets clogged up, water winds up in the foot wells

X2 on this!!!

Under the hood, just inboard of the battery you will see a large (2") vertical rubber tube.

On an I-6, it's right above the starter motor. That tube is the drain for the cowl vent. The lowest point of this tube is kind of pinched. It clogs up with leaves & needs to be cleaned out, all the way. I use a garden hose after removing the cowl vent grille.
Have a helper hold the pinched end open, so all the junk can be rinsed out.

but the water is collecting in the rear footwells not the front, this wouldn't cause that would it?
