if the door can not be opened by pulling on the latch rods from where the handle is located with a pair of pliers then the inner door panel will have to be removed to gain access to the latch rods to open the door and then replace the handle. the only bad part of that is the inner door panels normally do not come off in once pice that is able to be reinstalled without being cracked or completly broken. sorry for the bad news.

You should replace the handle with an aluminum version. The best one I have found is sold on eBay for 12 dollars.
Look for the one sold by mike8756.
It is easy to install, does not require removing any panels. Th first one I replaced took me about 1/2 hour. I hae done several since for friends and now takes about 15 minutes.
Installation instructions are here:

Just pull back on the panel after you remove the handle being held on by two screws, sorry if the panel breaks. But you can pick another tail gate panel at the Salvage yard for $20.00. After removing the handle you should have enough room to get to the c type latch, it's spring loaded and moves only one way to release the window. After that i am sure you can handle the rest. Keep me posted, be glad to help if you need more information. Good luck and hope this works for you.

SOURCE: extra cab door won't open
remove inner door panel & check linkage to lower latch. if connected then watch linkage while moving handle, if linkage seems to bow or bend then lower lacth is frozen & needs to be replaced.

theres what they call horseshoe spring clips on the back side of the handles they make a special tool that pushes them off! but if you got a small piece of stiff wire take a pair of needle nose pliers and make a short!! gental hook on the end and push the door panel back far enough to see the clip and hook into it and pull straight out!
