I removed the carpet and found a square plug in the front passenger foot well. The blue sealant had failed and the plug was loose. I sealed it with silicone and sprayed the undercarriage with the high pressure wand at the car wash. No water was coming in so reinstalled the carpet. Pleased with my sense of accomplishment, I went along with life, merry and content...for a month. I then noticed the carpet was wet again, just as saturated as it had been before. I reremoved the carpet and drove the truck around for a month or so. I cannot see any water actively leak into the interior. One day, after it had been raining moderately for a few hours and the truck had not been driven that day, I noticed an inch of standing water in the passenger foot well. The puddle was in the outer front area and about 6 inches in diameter. A day or two later the puddle was gone. I could not see where it went but I am pretty sure it had to drain out as I don't think that much water could evaporate that fast when the ambient temperature was around 6o Degrees F. This situation baffles me and I would like to fix it myself. If anyone has any ideas of where to start troubleshooting please let me know, I will greatly appreciate it.

Keep watering the whole vehicle, not just one spot. You might have to do it for several minutes while you're inside moving around looking for traces of water coming into the passenger cabin......just my 2 cents.
