You could try loosening the side bolts and tightening the top bolts then retighten the side bolts. Mine had the same leak on the right side and tightening the top bolts fixed it. Worst case is buy som new gaskets from JBG or LMC.

Good luck,

it leaks when parked and rolling, no i cant see light the tg closes all the way, its almost like it gets past the the side weatherstripping at the very bottom and then isnt able to get back out throught the ottom so it seaps into the carpet if thats makes sence

It's the seal for the window leaking.

Water runs down the window past the seal, drips onto the inside front of the TG ispection plate. Runs to the bottom of that, comes out the bottom of the inspection plate, runs down the front of the tailgate pooling at the bottom where the seal is, seaping into the carpet.

Replace the seal and make a small deflector plate that sends any water that may get in the tailgate past the inspection plate.

Clear as mud?

The weatherbelts, the sort of felt-ish things that kind of squeegee the glass between them. There's an inner and an outer, and they usually crack and leak.

You can get replacements from broncograveyard.

I have no pics and cant lower the Tailgate where it is siting at. Cant take a pic from inside becouse the speaker box is in the way.

Just look at your tailgate and think about water always going down hill.

Youl figure it out.
