Water Leak Both Floor Boards

So im at my last resort with this water leak. I have searched and searched for it and its not the a/c drain and its on both floorboards. I took the cowl off and the only way that i was able to get water to come in was to actually spray it in the blower intake. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I have water seeping into every crevice on my XJ. Your best bet would be to go crazy with some body seam sealer anywhere you can...but the ****'s expensive!

Are you sure you don't have rusted through floorboards, and the carpet is getting wet from the bottom?

If he's in Northern Virginia I'd say he's got rotted floors...but that would just lead to slight moisture I would think.

Bedliner lets it puddle right up (hence why I did it) but I can't install carpet unless I want old moldy smell in there.

Did you pull your carpet up and check for rust or are you going by the underside of the XJ?

Nice! I would suggest just pulling up all of your carpet and Herculining/Monstalining/etc. the floor so you don't really have to be all that concerned about it. It's a lot of work but a nice piece of mind.
