I washed jeep today and after drying about 1 hour later opened liftgate hatch and saw a water on my cargo slush mat. Looks like weather stripping around the rear hatch/door is leaking. Has Anyone had this leak ? Dried water and sprayed water very easy to resemble rain and when i opened lift gate water rolled off back of hatch and into channel. Water leaked through gasket then out plastic trim in back of head liner . Looks like a gasket leak.
I have a similar phenominon. After washing, I open the liftgate and flipper glass to dry in the recesses. When it's closed a single bead of water will run down the inside of the rear glass. Guess I will need to do a better job drying.

If it's pooling on the cargo mat, open the liftgate and check the two rubber looms (appx 1.5" in diameter) that pass through the roof of the cargo area. Not the flipper glass. Make sure they are seated fully.
I've searched for a similar problem, but couldn't find one. Twice I've heard a rattle in the cargo area of my '13, only to find the driver's side storage bucket - below the flashlight - full of water - with a chunk of ice in it bouncing around. Talking about a third full of water. That's a lot of water to be coming in from the liftgate - or any other place. And it is only on the driver's side. I haven't found any other wet areas.
