First make sure that your rear brakes are adjusted properly, adjust the star adjusters inside the rear drums so that there is a little drag when turning the rear wheels. Just so you can barely hear them toucking when turning the rear wheels. Then if necessary adjust the E-brake cables.

A frustrating WORK IN PROGRESS
See im having the same issue but mine is the cause of my own stupidity, i warmed up tge engine, and pulled the break and thought it unlatched and went down the road, and got home n found out it was still set, the brakes are new. I can barely touch them and stop better than some sport cars lol but bow when i set the E brake it still rolls. So im curious if i could just tighten the cable on this
Since we're on the subject, what do I do if the adjuster in the drums won't turn? It's stuck. Plus the cable adjuster is messed up, one side is tight and the other is wayyy loose. And the adjustment nuts on that are rusted.
Do I need a new adjustment linkage? And do I need new adjusters in the rear drums?
Sorry if I'm hijacking.

As long as you are working on the parking brake system you might want to check with your Jeep dealer to see if it is covered under the parking brake pedal recall. My brothers '95 unlatched and rolled into a nearby car. Luckily not much damage but could have been a lot worse. Good luck, Dave
I did as most stated above. I checked my rear brakes, cleaned and adjusted and then, adjusted the nut on the cable to fine tune. Got a better parking brake now. Make sure the parking brake cables move freely. Sometimes they can rust inside the cable. You can pull down on the adjuster and see if they are moving. Did that make sense?
