My jeep was leaking on the passenger side floor in the front. It would get the a/c box and I/P fuse block soaking wet. I had to take the fuse block out several times to dry it out and added dielectric grease to all the connectors and relays. The water would cause stuff to stay cut on after you turned the ignition off. After sealing off the radio antenna grommet, passenger door pass thru grommet, cleaning the cowl drains, and sealing of the roof rack bolts, it would still leak just as bad as before. I finally found the culprit after taking off the cowl cover. The water was somehow puddling up and flooding over in between the fresh air intake duct of the a/c box and the cowl. Sealed it off with strip caulk and have had a dry floor board since

I also had to seal off the a/c drain tube grommet/seal where the a/c box passes through the firewall and added an elbow to the drain tube before fixing all the other leaks

What do you mean by the cowl cover?

Yea I found it easier to use strip caulking because it's covered for the most part under the cowl. You're trying to seal between the base of the white thing and the metal it protrudes from. On mine I sealed off the one corner you can actually see, and built a wall up around the back and front of it so water could not get to the rear of the white thing.
