Probably from the windshield. Check this out:


It will get you started. I ended up drilling a hole on each side of my windshield frame to let the water drain.


I have a jeep...and it is modified...I win.

That is a good write up by Rusty although I disagree about cutting a inch off of the hose on the firewall.

Just clean it and watch it. If you cut it you may have motor odor and fumes coming into your cab. The cowl drain is the first place to look for your leak.

Pull the floor plugs and you wont get 2-3" of water.

Take my advice and find the source of the water or else risk your Jeep to the angry gods of rust and tetanus.
