    So,

    I did a little searching and found a few threads on water in the floor board of the passenger compartment. Some of the root causes were windshield leaking, weather strip up top leaking or AC drain clogged.

    Well, I have absolutely no water inside the truck, carpet is bone dry (didn't check under). But yesterday I noticed some water dripping from the front passenger side cab mount. I noticed it last night and it's still dripping now, so where ever it's coming from, there's quite a bit of water in there.

    I've checked the usual suspects (mentioned above) and from what I can tell it's none of them. I felt around where ever I could get my hand in front and above the drip to see if it was actually coming from somewhere else, but everything felt dry. Can't really tell in this picture, but the entire mount is soaked, not just the bottom where it's dripping from, so it's definitely coming from the topside of the cab mount.

    Anyone see this before?

    Normal from what I see.It's from your heater/defroster.All vehicles do it.

    Thanks. I was kind of thinking that's what it could have been. As I have been using both the defroster and heater lately. Though, just seems like a weird place to drain.

    Not more drips this weekend when it was warm out:)

    When you have to get up for work before noon it's kind of cold. And there's frost on the window.

    Tillers parks his truck outside next to a wall inside of a gate.

    You park your truck in the driveway or on the street.

    My baby stays in the garage overnight. Boom.

    :p
