TJ Driver side Flip Forward seat

Do any TJs come with flip forward drivers seat? I cant remember if the TJ Unlimiteds I drove had drivers flip. I have 2 kids and this would be very helpful.

do you mean fold forward, or TUMBLE forward? Mine folds forward, but you have to scoot the seat up the steering wheel, it doesnt tumble up to the dash like the pass. side. I dont think any TJs do.

my drivers tumbles forward.....i just pull the tab on the seat back.

alot of the time the cable will be broke on the drivers side that accuates the tumble feature.

look under the drivers seat on the track-slide closest to the center of the tub ...there should be a flat lever mounted to the inside of that track. push down on it. the seat should tumble forward.

not all tj's came with this feature.

1997 SE here.

Driver slides, but no tumble forward. I'd like to change that.

My 97 has regular non-flip forward seat brackets on the driverside. I think I need to start looking for a set of brackets.
Seems like some do some dont. Maybe because mine in an SE?

2x, you should take my advice and remove that rear seat. Fixes all the seat folding problems.

Ive got two kids. My daughter is 4 so she can get in and out herself but my son is not quite 2 yet. I have him on the passenger side so I can climb in the lock him in. It would just make life a bit easier.
