My tail gate is stuck up!

Dang it. My tail gate will not open. It appears the handle releases one side but not the other. And I have a bed liner thingy on the inside of the tailgate with rusted out screws holding it on. So I'm looking for an easy way to get my tail gate working again. Tried to pry the stuck latch with a long screw driver but that didn't work. Any other suggestions?

Spray it with WD40. Go inside and warm up with a cup of hot chocolate while it penetrates the rust.

My tailgate was stuck up once. I snuck up on it and a gentle kiss in the right spot and she warmed right up to me.
Oh shoot that was my wife not my tailgate, sorry.

WD-40 is a good idea. I should have thought of that.

Funny Jerry. Say, did you hear about the new Ford Trucks that are coming out with a heated tailgate?

Good DT. The question then is why would Ford put heaters in the tailgates of their new trucks?
The answer is: So you can keep your hands warm when you have to push them.

Is that anything like my Brother's hitch cover on his Chevy?
