SOURCE: How do you change rear
Try penetrating oil on the lug nuts where they meet the drum. Let it penetrate and gently tap the back edge of the drum while turning it. I just pulled mine off today and it required a lot of patience. My adjuster was inaccessible as the adjustment hole(s) were still sealed from the factory

loosen emergency brake both sides..open wheel cylinder and let fluid run as you pry gently side to side in between drum adn shoe through backing plate /drum area to collapse the shoes some..... use wd40 or quality rust buster at center of drum /axle area to loosen grip of rust fused metal at hub to drum ..tap tap with hammmer around circumference of drum to dislodge adn loosen shoes from drum and drum from axle..good luck.. be patient work slowly

Open up the tail gate, you will see two torque screws on the inside beside the tail lights. take these out, this will free up the housing and you can change it from there.

1/2 ton drums just slide off after the wheels have been remove. you might have to hit the drum with a hammer on the inner side by the backing plate because they wear a grove after a while making them hard to remove.

Look between the lug studs for a phillipsscrew. You will have to use amn impact scewdriver to get it if.
Also there may be a retaining ring around on of the studs.
