I would be very suspect of door seals on an OBS truck. Where is the carpet wet and do you hear a lot of road noise when driving?

Do you have cab lights or a sun visor? They can leak and the water will run down and collect in the trim piece above the windshield. Depending on how the truck is parked the water could end up in the center or either side of the truck. Could be a windshield seal also.

Mine used to leak as well. It was at the centor of the windshield. Thats a sign of who ever installed the windsheild before never got all the old sealer off, then water sits there at the top part of the windsheld fram and starts to rust. That is most cases with the OBS trucks from what my buddy told me, that replaces windshelds for a living. So if you need it replaced, makesure that you watch the person clean all the old silicone off and get it to bare metal.

Check the floor vents. Being it is bothsides, not the hump, makes me think water is coming in from the vents or the heater core is leaking into the floor vents and the coolant is draining on both floors. I have seen this once on a 95 F-150.
