Default Leaks in the Northwest!

OK, so I live in the Northwest and we get a lot of rain. Last week the wife says the floor is wet on her side(she could've told me she needed a reststop, JK). So I've been keeping an eye on it and sure enough I'm getting water from somewhere. Pulled up the mat today and found a lot of water. I haven't found where it's coming from yet. I think that I need to pull the whole interior to find it. Any thoughts other than the back window or 3rd brake light?

hmmm interesting. i know my 3rd brake light leaked to no end before i used some permatex around it but other than that im not sure

maybe check the rubber around the door on the passesnger side? i had a small tear and it would leak just a tiny tiny bit but not enough to get to the floor

After closer inspection and a break in the rain, I think that it is the third brake light. Noticed a small gap between the brake light housing and the cab of the truck. Sealed it with some silicone and we shall see in the next couple of days.
