Driver side front seat

Just got an 03 Sahara. Does the driver side front seat not flip up like the passenger side? Maybe I'm missing something.

It's been discussed a number of time buy no one really has a good answer what years/models/options have both fold and tumble seats. Some do. My 03 X does not.

My 2000 does. It has the string on the back of the seat or the lever behind the seat to fold it and a lever underneath the seat to go further forwards.

My '99 does not have the pull strap on the driver seat back however it does fold/tumble. There is a lever under the seat on the inside seat track that I use to fold/tumble.

I have a 98 Sahara..and mine is similar to this. If there is a string on the driver, I don't know it, because I just reach down and hit the release. My driver side however, will return to position, while the passenger just fold back down..and you always have the move the seat back.

That's what I'm talking about, the tumble feature. Couldn't think of the right word.

So does the lever underneath the seat make it a flip seat? bc i ordered Tuffy's under the seat lock box the one for the non flip seat, and i was taking my seat out before i got the lock box in the mail and noticed the lever. So im not sure on whether or not i wiill have to return the lock box for one with the flip seat

Only my passenger side seat fully tumbles but my driver side is a pain to get out of :\
I got the handles, not the strapts to move the seats.

If you are referring to this lever under the drivers seat, then I would think that you have a flip seat.

I've got a handle on each seat, not a strap - I believe this changed in '03.
I have an '03 Sahara and both are fold-and-tumble. I think it was an option as it is specified on my build sheet.

My 03 only the passenger folds and tumbles.

I was looking at different seats for the 97 because the passenger would not tumble. Thanks again WF, I just went out and looked and it has this lever. I pulled on it and it tumbled forward. I learned something new today.

I didn't even know that my Jeep had that option (for the drivers seat), until a buddy of mine reached under and found the lever.
