    Drum brakes are drum brakes, same formula applies regardless of vehicle. However, if you want to be specific, here are vids on how to replace on a Toyota Tacoma. It's a 2007 model but it will apply to your truck as well:

    Hit the drum with a small sledge hammer a few times. Remove the drum. Drink a soda.

    Back off the brake shoes.

    Remove any screws holding the rotors or drums to the hubs.

    Hit the rotors and drums with a 2lb. hammer between the studs to pop the rotors and drums loose. pull them off.

    Let off the handbrake and put two bolts the correct size in the holes in the brake drum and tighten them gradually and the bolts will push the drum off. What may have it stuck is rust on the hub where it goes through the center of the drum. Remove with light emery before replacing the drum.

    Not familiar with that one (Tacoma, I presume), but many have a threaded hole in the rear drums that you screw the bolt into that holds the jack in place. The bolt forces the drum off. Most later model Toyotas with drums are that way.
