Not saying you didn't but did bleed the master before you bled the brakes

Did you manually adjust the shoes after putting the drums back on if not try that or you can just back up and hit the brakes a lot till they adjust

With the master cylinder full of brake fluid, can you open the bleeders on the back brakes and fluid run out? Have you checked the emergency brake to see if it is working?

What brake problem did you initially have? Be more specific about "brakes not working".
Does it have ABS?
Throwing parts at it doesn't always mean you have changed the correct parts.
Other issues could be a bad brake booster, bad flex hoses, improper bleeding, wrong parts, rusted or kinked brake lines and the list can get lengthy.

I have had no rear brakes for awhile wheel cylinders were locked up put on new ones and brakes an hardware kit an drums. Still didnt work. Have good pressure but no stopping power. No abs. No kinked brake line. Put proportioning valve on still no rear brakes. Now put master cylinder on bench bled it put it on still no brakes. Now im putting on rear brake hose on to see if that works. I dont understand.

Did you happen to put monroe brake shoes on? Well I did last month and the jeep won't stop with them installed and the parking brake would not work either. I then put the oem brake pads back on with 180,000 miles on the shoes and they work Great!
Go figure.

Are your brake adjusters messed up? Mine are on my 99 they move , but won't adjust. I took the drum off and the springs for the adjusters are worn I'm getting ready to rebuild the whole rear brakes on mine.

fyi The rear brakes on these TJs realy don't do all that much and if your parking brake is working great as you say it does, perhaps the rear brakes are working just fine.. I know if you try to lock up all four tires by slamming hard on the brake pedal only the front will lock The rear won't lock up. Maybe when their wet they may lock. I hope this helps.

Very true. The front brakes carry something like 75% of your stopping power. The rear brakes are more for stability. If they don't work the rear end gets a little squirrelly under hard braking but if they lock up it can cause the rear to come around, especially in wet/slippery conditions.
