Water leak Front Passenger Floor

Could use some help on how to troubleshoot a leak on a 2005 Jeep Liberty Limited with 4WD. Have a water leak Front Passenger Floor- wet carpet. It has happened four times. First time I hand washed the car and after my wife noticed the wet carpet. To me that didn't seem enough to cause anything. Second time, I took the car through a car wash and noticed a wet carpet on the front passenger side. Third time the car set in the rain and we started on a trip and my wife's sweater dragged the carpet and got wet. And finally, the fourth, the car sat in the driveway, we had a medium rain and we got home (using another car) and noticed the carpet on the front passenger side was partially wet. I DO HAVE A sunroof. No visual damage to sunroof. No wetness around frame of sunroof. No sign of any water running down from sunroof. The front windshield has two 6-9 inch cracks running from the top of the windshield ( due to gravel while traveling). No starring. One is actually on the drivers side and another we just noticed this week barely on the passenger side.
That's it. I am Kind of lost on how to trouble shoot this even to figure out the issue on where the water in/below the carpet on the front passenger seat is coming from.

have a 2006 kj liberty and have that issue too.. found out the gasket on the frame (between door and jeep) around the door, especially the one at the buttom start collecting water when it rains and then overflows/trickle through the plastic steps/guard and goes inside and causes my carpet driver side to get soggy. check to see if theres some gunk buildup on the folds of the door gasket and underneath the metal frame of the door.. found out by starring at it for a long time (and doing the chalk test "NAVY THING") where the leak was coming from and i just have to wipe them out clean due to dirt, mud and allsort from preventing it having a good seal.

seems to fix my issue for now...

Keep the jeep wave alive no matter what jeep you drive. Don't hate, one day a fellow jeeper might help you out a **** hole.

Rained last night. Checked things this Morning. Wiped door gasket and generally removed dust, minor items. Interestingly door gasket itself seemed mostly dry and no water near bottom (under closed door, or plastic bottom trim) ill see if there is a positive result. I am a little skeptical since everything is sundry, but will see and report. Thanks.

Hi. I had the same problem and here us what my problem was. Open your moon roof and stick your head through it but not all the way. In each corner there are weep holed that clog. When they clog, water over gills in that area and drain down above the headliner it below the roof. I stuck a tiny screwdriver in the holes and pulled out sand and decomposing leaves. I had no idea. No problems since then. Good luck

I had a problem with the condensation from the A/C leaking onto the passenger side floor board. There was so much water that I did not believe that this was the source of the leak... However, I attached a clear plastic hose and a hose clamp to the drain and I have not had a problem since. This video helped me out;
