My passenger seat tilts forward to get access to the back. But the Driver's seat does not. Is this the stock oem setup? Why would one tilt forward and not the other?

That’s factory. The idea, I suppose, comes from the CJ-7 with a back seat. Most likely passengers enter from the curb side of the Jeep. You can buy pricey aftermarket brackets that tilt on both sides or you can buy oem brackets from a YJ. For me, I needed the lowering modification so the original driver side bracket was much easier to work with.

CJ-7s also came with driver-side tilting brackets. Both my base-model '85 CJ-7 and my Renegade '84 CJ-7 had tilt brackets on both front seats.
