Discovered my passenger side carpet soaked through. Had to pull the seat, got a fan under the carpet trying to dry it out. Any ideas where the leak is, or how to go about finding it?

Probably leaking around the light on back of the cab. The way it is made the water will end up in the front floor board. Try this is a great site for dodge trucks.

Had the same problem with my 85 Nissan pick up. The drain hose was plugged up, letting condensation build up in the air cond. Took a long wire and got the crud out of the hose and solved the problem.

if you have been using your AC, would look there first. Short rubber tube on a lot of vehicles goes from Ac to the floor below. If tube clogs up, water will run down inside the truck.If not using your Ac, pull your carpet up by the cowl and see if it is wet. Some vehicles have a rubber tube going from the cowl air intake down the inside of the cowl by the door pillar hinge area. Leaves and such can run down and clog the tube up. You can see or feel it under the door post Look and see if that has been wet inside the pillar post. Guess you don't have a sunroof, they have tubes that leak also. Let us know what you find, and go on from there

Any anti-freeze odors from leaking heater core?
8yrs old, possibility hole rust through floor?
Windshield leak?
Weatherstrip around door dried out, crushed or missing?
Haven't lost your ability to hold your water?
Some places to start!

Not the heater core, plain water.
No rust in floor.
Windshield, guess break out the garden hose.
Doors seals look good.
Won't go there.

The same happened to my car. My neighbor said it was the a/c , opened the hood and took out the a/c hose and 'unclogged' it, installed it back and problem was solved. That was two months ago, not a drop of water ever since. Had a hard time drying the carpet,though.

My old truck has 240 air conditioning. Wind down two windows and drive 40MPH.
