What kind of seats should I buy for my TJ

I need new front seats for my TJ but i'm not sure what kind to get. I'm thinking about spending around $200 each. I read that for some seats you need and adaptor to mount, is this difficult to install. Also, if I buy any kind of bucket seats different from factory styled seats, how am I sure that the seat will lean forward to allow access to the back seats..I did not see any levers on pictures of most seats I have looked at.

Corbeau has brackets to mount their seats & utilize the fold-and-tumble feature for the passenger side.

I bought these before when I had a YJ, more comfortable than you think.

I hope to be installing new suspension seats within the next two months and I'm currently between PRP & Corbeau. Both of those brands have adapter brackets available that make installing them a simple bolt-in process.

I installed Bestop seats into my previous TJ but I won't go that route again. As much of a Bestop top fan as I am, I'm not a fan of their seats due to repeating problems I had with my driver's seat. The foam in the seat bolstering on the door side crumbled & collapsed within the first year. Bestop sent me a replacement seat under warranty but the second seat had the same problem of the foam crubling within the first year.

I owned two Grand Cherokees with heated leather seats and don't remember their comfort being worth writing home about. They were basically flat leather seats without much side bolstering to help hold you in when offroading.
