Tailgate stuck on 2006 Tundra

I hauled some gravel/sand mixture last weekend and now my tailgate won't open so that I can wash it all out. The handle comes up and it sounds like it is releasing but I can't see whether or not it is. Is there a hidden work around I can use to fix this?

Remove the small access panel behind the handle. When removed, you will see the latch rods, manually swist these to open tailgate. Inspect the components after this. You probably got a piece of gravel in there. Spray it all down with WD40.
