hi, does this have a top over it or is the bed open ?

There is a panel on the inside ,if you take that off ,you will see the linkage .if you pull on each side of that mechanism this will pull the latches from each stop and the tailgate will open ..most lickly the linkage either fell off or the mechanism is rusted ..jazzmaster ..
