Converting non-tilt buckets to tilting

I've got leather buckets from a 99-ish S-type Blazer in my truck. Driver side is power. My truck is a regular cab and these bucket seats do not flip forward. They must have been from a 4-door Blazer. I want them to flip forward to access behind my seats. Can I do this relatively easily? Am I compromising the safety of the seat at all if I do this?

You can change non reclining seats to reclining seats, or you could fabricate a mounting bracket that tilts forward. All seats are different, so whether or not it's an easy thing to do depends on the seat.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
