I've got a 98 GC and I'm having trouble with water getting onto the floorboards after a rainstorm. At first it was just in the back, but I sealed the rear window shut and now I'm OK there. Now, however, I've noticed considerable water in my front passenger floorboards and under my right-rear seat (under the jack). I checked the door seals and they're all nice and clean, I can't figure this out. The bad thing is that my Jeep is starting to smell. Anyone got any ideas?

Do you use your a/c much? You may have a clogged a/c drain which will cause your floor boards to fill up with water.

Or the heater core could be leaking.. Do you run antifreeze cause if you do you should smell the antifreeze if its the heater core..

I just got done with this problem on my 96 cherokee. After tearing apart the entire dash and carpet and seats i decided the water was coming in from the air inlet on the A/C sytem. And from what i can tell it looks like the grand cherokee has the same set up. The inlet is in the drain tray with the wiper motor. If you want to do a complete fix you can take the plenum out of the car and seal the intake from the interior side. Unfortunatly that means diconnecting the heater core hoses and A/C lines. Other then that you could cut a hole above the intake and weld the hole shut but im not sure how well that would work. I ended up just putting silicone on the backside of the intake that you can reach without taking the plenum out, and i put some around the sponge where the heater core lines come into the engine bay. If you want any more detail let me know and i will try to help. Good luck
