Getting the priority set correctly for hooks in JK2 is sticky.
You might take a look at what I did setting hook priority in
mod_jk 1.2 so that it would work correctly with mod_dir. My
cvs commit messages might be helpful from 
jakarta-tomcat-connectors/jk/native/apache-2.0/mod_jk.c .

Here is the page the docs how hook priority works:

It all comes down to carefully reviewing the hook priority of other
modules and how those modules interact with JK2. Then setting the
hook priorities in JK2.
