Try backing up about 20 feet, and stopping. If the brakes do not adjust... self adjusters are gummed or frozen up. It's a simple matter of taking the assembly apart (located at the bottom of the break shoes) and freeing, greasing, adjusting, and puttting it all back together.

Happy Holidays and Safe Jeepin'
