Replacement passenger seat question

1998 Jeep Wrangler 2.5L 5 speed

The front passenger seat has a bar in the back that you pull to tumble the seat forward.
Think it is the following:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/22356901751...sAAOSwU4FcwGgs

I was recently in a friends Jeep 2005 or 2006 and it had a lever on the top side that you would pull up and the seat would tumble forward and would tumble all the way where it is basically touching the dash.
Like this one:


I have also seen on eBay another seat that just has a tab that you pull on and the seat tumbles forward.(I think this is what my first Jeep had but honestly can't remember.)

Does it tumble forward the same distance as what I have or is it more forward like the 2005-2006 model year?

Also could I get a used seat with the bottom mechanism and literally just bolt it in. (Like the top picture)

My kids have a hard time with that lever in the back and I really like that the other seat tumbles forward more.

Thanks

Hey Guys,
I just found the following ebay listing:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/323771010645
https://www.ebay.com/itm/32377115069...UAAOSwSdNcq4Aa

This company is fairly close to my brother and if I can verify that these can be directly bolted into a 98 Wrangler I want to buy them.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

All Jeep seats are interchangeable if they come with the base. 03-06' seats just 1" sit lower and have a taller back I believe.
