That seat should lift up. You have to fold it in and then pulled the tab and it should lift up and closer to the dash

Pull the fold and tumble (I don't think that is the official name) tab that sticks out half way up the seat back on the outside edge. It's the black cloth strap in the photo you posted.

How do you get people in the back without doing this every time??? I would take a picture of mine to show you but I don't have stock seats anymore or any seats in the back either.

In the picture you posted your seat is tilted forward but it is not folded.

Tab isn't working I guess? My wife pulls the tab and I try to push it all the way forward and it only folds the top! This is as far as I can get it to fold when pulling the tab

Here is a link to a write up on how to replace the fold and tumble cable:

Jeep Wrangler Seat Track Release Cable Repair

This pic shows what has to be moved to get the seat to release:
