    take the tailgate panel off (12 or so screws) and you can use a cordless drill to move it up and down. mu buddy did that for years

    you have to remove the cable from the motor, then hook the drill to the end of it.

    you can hook up 12V to the motor wires, and it should either a) go down, b) go up, c) spark like crazy... hopefully not c
