water drain

I just wanted to say hello to everyone in the forum community and I have a question that seems to be familiar with jeeps.

ok it is not my AC from the start nor my windshield or sunroof. Last Friday I took a short cut to avoid a traffic jam and ended up getting my GC stuck in puddle of mud that was about 2 1/2 ft deep the entire was submerged , everything seems to be working fine radio, engine, transmission, which I have changed the oil, and transmission fluids already luckly it looks like there was not water in the oil or transmission as best as I can tell. my problem is whenever I come to a stop I hear the water between my floorboard and undercarriage, I found the drain plug on the passenger side of the jeep but I can not find it on the drivers side any help would be great.
Thank you

You don't happen to have water in the battery compartment or the same compartment on the driver's side?

Don't forget to check the well where the spare is stored.

You may also want to check/change the dif and transfercase fluids.

There were a few posts awhile ago about water sloshing, I'll try yo find them when I get back to a computer.

@ColdCase , and Jake03KJ,
I'll have to check Saturday to see If that may be where it is at, I know that it is on the drivers side for sure the drain plug on the passengers side I've left out just in case any water may go onto that side. But do you know of any drain plugs on the drivers side of the 2012 GC ? Just wondering. I'll look in the battery compartment and spare tire area tomorrow. thanks guys I'll let you know what I find.

FWIW I had a particularly industrious squirrel get an acorn or some kind of seed stuck in the longitudinal support under my hood. It's the long boxed in brace between the fender and the engine compartment. Every time I would stop or go I would hear this damn acorn rolllllling. For the longest time I thought it was stuck between the floorboard or in one of the channels under the floor because I could actually feel it under my feet. I ended up squirting some spray foam into the support under the hood, and while it was still sticky took a drive. Heard it roll once and then never again.

My point with all of this is the water could be trapped in there and still sound like its in the underside of your jeep. There seems to be no provisioning for any draining from that support. It's only open on one end.
