Systematically cut it out with a sawzall reciprocating saw.
Cut the post that the latch attaches to when closed, if you can get at it with the blade.
Then, replace the post.
May need a long prybar to open if, simply stuck, while operating the opening button or lever.
Good luck with this replacement of the tail gate.

If you can get the hatch unlocked and opened, you can remove the interior panel and unplug the factory powered door lock. This will not do anything to your security systems. The only down fall is it will only open with the key. If the hatch doesn't work with the key either, I would say you need a new lock assembly. I have shaved my door handles and have removed the power door lock, so I know it will work just fine ( I depend solely on my shave door handle system and my security system (Viper) to access my truck) - from Dakota-Durango.com Lots of info there..I agree with losing the power opening option if you have it...I am renewing a 98 Durango and its keys all the way...needed new lift struts for the rear hatch tho..(that thing is very heavy...I HAD to have help installing the new struts, I had held it up with my skull to remove the worn ones....definitely use E-Bay for parts search and full synth oil w/Lucas synth additive will make the motor happy.Hope things work out....

Check to see if you can take out the tailgate handle and see if the unit is still connected to both arms that moves to release the pins are still connected and or broken.
