With the wheel off, give it good hit between the studs, like you were trying to put it on. Hit one side then the other, the drum will start to rock a bit, then pop off. You may want to put the wheel nuts back on as to avoid hitting the studs. Installing the brake shoes is not that simple, best you do one shoe at a time.If you look close there should be 2 different shoes for each side. Back off the adjuster to get the drum back on, this may take a few trys. Also check the brake drum , it may have a wear ridge that will need to be ground off. Hope this helps! Frankster016

SOURCE: i have the 83 jeep cj7 with the brake light

The brake light switch is located on the upper part of the brake pedal since it is activated by it. It should be the only switch with an electrical connector attached to the pedal.
