my truck did the same after driving in some hard rain for a day (700+ miles), not sure the root cause yet, thinking a leak under the cowl.

Usually it's the third brake light seal that is leaking, The water will then run down the drip rail inside the cab and pool on the driver side floorboard.

On the back of the cab the third brake light has a foam seal that is prone to drying out and cracking allowing water to leak in to the cab. I believe it was a dealer only part but wasn't that much $ seemed to have solved my problem

my cab was cracked in 3 spots on the top back, my rear window was improperly installed from the factory and had gaps i could see through, and my heater core was leaking. does the water feel sticky and smell sweet? or does it have a water musk smell? the 3rd brake lights do have issues as well.

Is it the rear passenger or front floor mat? This will make a difference. Yes the rear light can be leaky to that extent. You should have a fan or a heater of some sort blowing on the carpet to help prevent rust. The longer it sits with water the more probe to rust damage it will be.

Mine was the front driver side and I do have an extended cab... it ran along the drip rail inside the cab to the driver side front as it's the lowest point in the cab. Also from past experience when the heater core goes the passenger side floor will get wet

It is your ac condensation dripping back into your cab, all disgrace do this there a seal that drys out. What you do is cut a 6" piece of garden hose and put it on the end of the ac drain that is located on the fire wall in the inside of the engine bay
