Bleed your brakes again.
The easiest way I have found to get a stubborn pitman arm off (besides cutting it)
Get a pitman arm puller.
Put it on the pitman arm and tighten it up.
Put a long pipe on the arm from under the hood, the closer to the steering box the better.
Have a buddy smack on the pipe at the same time you are tightening the pitman arm puller. It will come off pretty easy without heat or cutting.

how can a ajust the back this was my first time tearing my jeep apart, man it feels good! but god damn does it get frustrating ! almost finished just need that pitman arm and brakes cleaned up
the rear brakes have the adjuster (star) wheel that brings the brake shoes "out" to the proper place. when insalling new brakes, it is the usual procedure to run the adjuster all the way "in". this means that the pistons in the wheel cylinder have to move further to actuate the brakes. to adjust them, you look on the back side of the drum and you will find an elongated hole, usually covered with a rubber plug. remove the plug and and turn the star wheel with a flat screwdriver until you can just feel the brakes dragging. that it---put the rubber plug back and do the other side. you may have to bleed them again.
this info is also in the various manuals on brakes.

I agree with a prior post. Get a Pitman arm puller. It works 100% I've only need that once on an old 1973 Roadrunner, ahhhh. Many moons ago. They arm is pressed on and it have to be removed with a puller, especially if you plan on reusing it. Good luck!
