XJ front seat swap (manual vs power seats)

This may be a stupid question. My first one was...I want to swap out my dirty front XJ manual cloth seats for leather Grand seats. Can a power Grand seat work manually in a XJ and if so will seat slide easily front and back and recline? Is it a matter of changing seats only and keeping XJ tracks? I've seen threads about wiring replacement power seats to manual XJ's but I just want leather seats, power not needed, just functionality. Thanks.

Thanks. I'll try to find seats with recline levers first. Then I'll try wiring the seats if no luck.
