YJ leaking, help!

Ok so I have a problem. My jeep leaks serious amounts of water into the passenger side of the cab when it's raining. I've tracked it down to coming from somewhere between the firewall and heater box under the dash but can't seem to figure it out. I'm talking its leaving puddles on the floor which is ok since I rhino lined the whole thing but still.....standing water is not ideal. Can anyone help me out here?

Your cowl vent drain hose is plugged. Someone has a picture of it but it just needs to be cleaned out. Not a big deal really.

My 93 sat for a two years and this really backed up. All I did was disconnect or and cleaned the hose out with a garden hose. Problem fixed!

UPDATE: alright, first hard rain since I first posted. Cleaned out the vent line and pulled off the grate and cleaned the box out. Dirty but no blockage and it still leaks. There's a gap between the heater box and fire wall on passenger side juuuust big enough for me to fit my hand in between and that seems to be where the water is coming from. I'm thinking about shoving some weather stripping up there and see if that helps. Any thoughts?
