IT IS THE FREAKING piece of **** AC system. The drain nipple is clogged (happens very frequently b/c the grill and screen does NOT block leaves and other debris. The AC system is based on a 15+ year design that Jeep has Never chosen to fix. It drips in all the 1990 series jeeps. Most people dont discover it until 2-3 years after the carpet gets so soaked it Never can dry. Take it to A/C mechanic with LOTS of Jeep experience. Sorry - expect to pay for a complete removal and replace of dash and AC ducts ($1,200-1800).

You have to find the leak Have a shop use their Evap Smoke Machine Pressurize the cabin & see if smoke comes out around the windshield,engine compartment,etc Hate to run hose over the car, but you can see it come in,so that is an option,with someone under the dash with a light watching. Check on internet for the issue on your vehicle Call an auto glass place, for advice on what they solve
Do you have a sunroof?you might need to clean drain tubes.have you had a windshield replaced?or it could be a body seem.you will need to remove panels and lift up corner of the carpet and run the garden hose over the area and check for water in vehicle.
The first place I would look is the floor board caps. Make sure one or more of them aren't pushed up, allowing water to enter the cabin. Also, because your defroster is probably on while it's raining, make sure the A/C drain plug isn't clogged. It's a small rubber fiting that sticks out from inside the firewall, behind the engine. Simply pull it out and clean it. When you pull it out, you might be surprised to see water coming out of the hole!
Just a couple things to check. I hope this helps! :)
I think that I can help you. It sounds like your drain-tube is plugged up. Get in the passenger side, and pull the carpet back from under the glove box. Look for a black rubber pipe that goes from a black box, and pokes thru the firewall, on the passenger side. Remove the hose from the box, and have a container ready to catch water. If water comes out of the black box, your drain hose is plugged up. Clean out the clog, and you will be golden.
do you have a sun roof, if so start there, because there are two hoses at the back corners of the roof pan that allow water to drain, if they leak, they will soak the rear floorboards, and if not that check the door jam seals.(note that if the plugs on the floor are missing that will be verry hard not to have wet carpet)........let me know?
first, when I read your post I remembered that if the ac drain hose (small hose stub on the engine side of the firewall, usually on the passenger side) gets plugged this can happen. If that doesnt fix it, get a friend to spray with a hose and start looking for where the water is entering the cabin. Leaks are a real pain to find, even for shops, so don't get discouraged if it takes a while to beat this!
