Replace parking brake

I tried googling but nothing for my ZJ about replacing the parking brake. Does anyone have a guide or should I just take it to the mechanic.

Just like dusterdude said, it's a typical drum brake setup inside the rotor. And just like changing drum brakes, get the spring and clip kit for them, they're not expensive.
