Water puddles in my floorboards

Everytime I get a good rain and my Jeep sits outside, ill either have a puddle in my floorboards when I open my door, or when I take the first turn in it water pours out from the heat vents all over my feet or my passengers feet. I know there is a drain tube somewhere around the air vent but im not sure where. Also i have a vent scoop with the opening facing the windsheild so im kinda curious as to how the water is getting into my air vent unless it is leaking around it. Any idears?

My vent tube is clear, but I still get water on my driver side floorboard after it rains, or when the snow melts off of it. I find that the rain runs in along my half door uppers, down the door and drips onto the floor. The passenger side stays dry, and I'm pretty sure it's because the road crest of the road causes the jeep to lean to the right when parked.

While its removed, cut the pinch point off so that the crud doesn't build up there and you will never experience a problem with that again.

Agreed on the other points though that if that doesn't solve your problem the water is coming from somewhere else.

Then again that used to be my motto until I got the Jeep, now that doesn't even work half of the time.

I do not mean to discourage you my friend but I got tired of trying to find the leaks on my Jeep, I just removed the floor plugs and Rhino lined the tub and roll cage, water still comes in but now I don't care.

I really tried everything, changed the cowl seal, all gaskets, covered all body joints with RTV... water still made it through, It is better IMHO to just go for rust protection and let the leaks be.
