Shopping list: Spray can of "White Lithium grease" and a spray can of WD-40 or similar penetrating lubricant, and spray the door latch assy, inside out, with WD-40 first. Even if you have to put window down & aim spray nozzle from top at area of latch, and soak it. Stick the nozzle inside the key slot also, and give it a few squirts. After you let it sit for a minute or 2 start working the lock on door, lock ,unlock, lock, unlock, until you feel it getting easier, now do same with key, until it starts to loosen up. Once you get it working freely, give it a few minutes, and do same with "white lithium grease". That will hopefully protect it from seizing (rusting) up again. Every once in a while when you think of it, give latch another shot of lithium grease. I usually try to do mine before & after winter, or whenever I start to feel it getting a little stiff again. Worst thing is the glass you have to clean if you aim spray too much toward glass, but small price to pay for not having to pull door panel off. If your door panel is easy to get off to allow for better access to back of latch assy, that would definately be better, but that's up to you & your experience with tools. Then you can be sure you got all the related linkages lubed where they need to be.

assuming that this jeep has not been wrecked recently, the only way to get that door open is to remove the door panel while the door is closed, at least enough to reach the door latch inside the door, once reached you can operate it and release it to open the door, I will tell you that the likely hood of damage to the door panel will probably occur, I have had this problem before and I had to cut a hole in the panel reach in and open the door, sorry it can't be simpler. if you feel the latch operating and you have recently ran into something, try pull the door handle from inside while pushing the door open

Remove the inner door panel and check to make sure that the linkage rod that goes between the outer handle and the latch is connected. It's possible that the plastic end clip broke.
