need help on rear brakes for 04 wrangler x

The pads and drums have a groove that matches in them and I cant seem too find them at my local auto parts store where do you get them, what is the purpose and is this original. Thanks for the help in advance.

Did my brakes this past weekend. I just sanded the drums (though getting them turned is a much better choice) and replaced the shoes. It shouldn't make any difference at all if the new ones have the groove

He said pads so I thought he had rear disk brakes.

The ring is the build up of brake dust that accumulates between the friction material on the shoe. You should remove the build up before using the drum on any new shoes even it has the gap on the shoes.
