There are Drain Hoses in the rear of the Sun Roof?

Mine leaks out of the same top flap above the "oh crap" handle, however, I don't have a sunroof? This drain you guys are referring to, could this be my issue as well?

No, your prime suspect would be the roof luggage rack. Remove the rack and reseal the holes. Go to a glass show and get about a foot of their thinnest Butyl Tape. Place a strip over each hole. Poke a small hole in the center of the strips and replace the bolts allowing the butyl tape to work into the hole. You do not have to completely remove the rack... do one attachment at a time and just lift it up to have working room. Prop it up with a block or whatever while you work on the hole.

This beats teflon tape or silicone or both.

Also check the corner of your windshield for a tiny leak in the body seam. You can see the tiny seam if you remove the column covers and use a light and a mirror. Mine leaked there.

Chirpz, what do you mean a glass show? Is the butyl tape, or an equivalent, something that a Lowes would carry? I'm fairly certain it is indeed the roof rack because if I park on a slight incline there is no leak (the incline is not enough to where it would not leak in the corner of the windshield). Although its probably leaking into the rear of the cab somehow lol, at least not on my leg!

Sorry.... Typo.... I meant "glass shop." I worked at a glass shop. Most glass shops have butyl tape in a variety of types. You want something thin (1/16" or 1/8") and at least 1/2" wide. Wider is better. I used a type that has a foil backing. You can actually iron it on if you like. It is ideal but hard to find.

I poured gallons of water down my drain tubes looking for leak and it never showed up. Here is my thread on the subject and how I fixed it.

I have had the same annoying leak on the drivers side grab bar ever since I purchased mine new in 2007, it leaked on the two days after I purchased it brought it back to dealership 3 times and they have never been able to fix it. I will check out the link you provided.
