Driver side floor wet (2004 F-350)

I have a 2004 F-350 Crew Cab and noticed the floor is wet on the drivers side after driving in rain. I have heard the sealer at the pinch weld eventually fails...any insights?

Thanks

I would start by checking
1. inner fender
2. firewall plugs
3. under dash over column (for possible windshield leak)
4. Lift carpet and check for holes in floorboard.

Thanks. I checked all of your suggestions...the only thing that seemed abnormal was the floor plug (smaller of the 2) was loose in the hole. I gooped some silicone on it and reinstalled...will go find new plugs as it was pretty weathered.

Also... how high is the floor wet? Higher in one area? Do you have a mechanical floor shifter for the transfer case or tranny?

The wettest area is under where the floor mat hook is, which generally above the loose floor plug. Its not wet under the pedals or along the kick panel. I do have a floor shifter for the transfer case, but it doesn't seem damp around there.

Probably a simple fix then.
Fix plug, dry thoroughly, drive in rain again to check.
Hope that's it. Good luck..
