    under the cowl cover, and around the windshield under the gasket are two common places i've seen rust out quite a bit.

    10 to 1 it's coming from the base of your windshield........

    actiallly the cowl is a little more common, and less known (who tears a truck down that far- other than me... :rolleyes: )

    Unless you live up here, where 9 times out of 10 it's from rusted out lower windshield sills.....:deal:
