Post 1995 Jeep YJ , back breaks wont stop!

So i have my yj that rear breaks wont stop,
while on a jack stand they will completely stop but will start going again, but when on the road they will not lock up or stop at all.
I have changed the wheel cylinders, master cylinders, the steel brake lines and the rear flex lines many times.
I have also bled the brake lines several times .

If anyone has any ideas on what it could be, or what i could try please let me know!

Did you remember to adjust them?
At the bottom between the shoes is an adjustment screw. There should be a rubber plug directly behind it that you can pop out and adjust the shoes with the drum on. With the parking break off and no pressure on the pedal, adjust the shoes out until they just barely contact the inside of the drum.

Which Ford proportioning valve? YJ without ABS has 2 steel lines for the front wheels and 1 for the rear coming out of the valve.
A proportioning valve from an Explorer with rear disc brakes will not work on a rear drum brake vehicle, I tried it, didn't work, long story!
