Does this happen on the Drivers Side? This always happened to my 04' WJ. I never figured where it was coming from.

There is indeed a drain on the engine compartment side, which can get clogged. Try to open it with some thin rod.

The a/c condeser water leaks out of that tube on the firewall. But some how rain water is getting in there and not coming out unless i bang on the box

Does the water come out from the drain in the engine bay when you bang on the box, or from an other place? Normally no rainwater should enter the box in the first place. Isnīt it condenser water which accumulates and just a little comes out of the drain? Did you try to pry the drain with something to see if more water comes out?
Did you check the air inlet aft of the hood for any debris which would let raining water to accumulate and enter the airco system?

Yes the water comes out of the drain. Maybe it is the condenser water building up when it is real humid out. What do you mean buy prying the drain. I took of the plastic wiper cowl today and that was clean. Last year i had a problem where the water was coming back into the truck and under the carpet but i fixed that with some silecone. I added a piece of hose to the the end of the drain tube.

There is most probably something blocking (partly) the drain tube. Did you try to put something in the drain tube to see if there is something blocking it ?
