Need help in North Dallas

My husband and I are going through a divorce and I was awarded the jeep (Which he is not too happy about). Before he moved out of the house he removed the bar underneath the seat so I can't move the seat up to push in the clutch. I also cannot get it to turn over. The distributor cap is fine and there are no loose wires as far as I can tell, but I need someone who could possibly see if you could get it to turn over. The battery is fine as well.

I have a 1990 YJ Wrangler.

Please let me know if you could possible help me!

First off take the bar off the passenger seat and put it on the driver side. But about the Jeep not starting I have no idea.

Only need 3 things to start a motor: fuel, air, and spark. If the battery is ok, check the spark plugs / distributor cap. Alternator has nothing to do with starting a vehicle, only keeping it running. If those are ok, I'd move on to the fuel filter, see if it's clogged. It's doubtful that it isn't getting air, but you could just take the intake tube off of the throttle body to make sure.
