I would take off the rear drive shaft and pull the lid off the brake and clean it out...

While you're under there, check for oil leaks. Just replaced the flanges on the t-case that were leaking & causing the brake to foul up.

mud in the drum acts as a grinding paste, clean out the drum and adjust the shoes
3rd low and BOOT IT

If you like to play in the mud, you may want to talk to GBR about an X-Brake disc brake conversion.
