In case I can't find a power seat at the junkyard, would a 2000 manual seat bolt in where I remove the 2000 power seat?

Thanks for taking the time to answer. Sorry if I didn't make myself very clear. I'm not trying to weld anything. I'm trying to expand my chances of getting a cheap seat by looking at junkyards for either a power or non-power driver seat for my 2000 Grand Cherokee. Right now it's a power seat which has a frame with mutiple breaks in it. If I can't find a power seat but do find a non-power seat (from a 1999 to 2004 Grand Cherokee) I was wondering if that would work. In other words, 1) is the bolt pattern the same and, 2) would any other modifications need to be made to swap to a non-power seat (other than removing the old electrical stuff)?
The top of your response said just "yes". So I can unbolt the power seat with the four floorpan bolts and replace it with a non-power seat, and the holes will line up and the seat will work manually just like a manual seat is supposed to? Thanks again. This forum is fantastic.

If you take a non power seat from a junk yard take the track with it. Not 100% positive but I'm pretty sure the tracks are different. The only difference between the actual seats it's the power motor

It will bolt right in and work fine.

Yeah ignore what I said about the tracks. I was thinking of converting a seat to power. The seat will just bolt in
