Flip forward driver's seat was an option on CJ's.
Early YJ seats are the same as CJ seats, later YJ seats recline. Not sure what the transition year was, but I have Bestop seat covers on my seats and my passenger is a YJ seat. No difference at all in the CJ seats and early non-reclining YJ seats except the color/ design of the fabric (my passenger seat has the vinyl with "Jeep" all over it under the bestop cover).
