Water Leak Into Cab and Fuse Box 2006

For the past two rains and one car wash my '06 F-250 6.0 gets about a cup of water on the driver's side floor, and the fuse box gets wet, and lots of lights, the radio, and the "Check Guages" displays dimly and on and off...Truck starts and runs fine. It dries up and all works fine. Door gasket is dry, entire engine compartment is dry. I'm thinking water is coming through the vent in front of the driver side windshield and leaking through the firewall? Haven't looked hard up under the dash yet...I've owned the truck since new 10/06. Just started doing this about 3 weeks ago...Any ideas?
Thanks
Marc

Not sure about the '06 but it seems like I saw somewhere a post regarding a leak near the DS "A" pillar?

Had the same thing, dealer just found a bad cab light. Looked fine but that's was it. There was also a post on ehere, I have the sunroof and the drain holes plug up but not an issue from my end. Just a thought, PULL THE FUSE PANEL COVER UNTIL FIXED, I did. The water doesn't get into the panel without the cover attached.

Check the fire wall. There should be a couple of plugs there where the clutch pedal would be. If you have anything after market that uses these make sure they are caulked. You might need to pull the fuse box off to check. I believe there are 4 8mm bolts that hold it on.

Sweet...! I think you got it. I'll looking into the cab light and check the firewall too. It got stolen, taken to Mexico for 2500miles, then recovered. Maybe the bad guys yanked some alarm wires that go through the firewall. I suspect it's the light though...not Gremlins after all. Love that truck...!
Thanks
