tilt and slide

i have a 97 tj, which only has a passenger side tilt and slide seat
i was wondering if it would be possible to take a tilt and slide frame and put it on my driver seat?

The driver's seat should tilt & slide...


The mechanism is probably just broken.

My '97 SE had a driver seat with a fixed riser, and no loop to yank the seatback forward without trying to get at the little lever behind the seat. I replaced it with a later seat with the loop, and now the seatback tilts forward, but the whole seat does not completely move toward the steering wheel, which is a function of the riser.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that it will work, but will work best with the pull tab on the side of the backrest. Also, keep in mind that the seat risers decreased in height as the years went by, so it would be best to find an earlier one to maintain your stock seat height.

My '99 Sport also has a fixed driver seat. Meaning it won't swing up and forward like the passenger seat to allow someone to climb into the back, it can only be adjusted to slide back & forth on the track and the seat can be adjusted to lean forward/back. It's been like this since I drove it off the dealer's lot. Definitely a different mechanism underneath, so it's not "just broken".
